Argentina 5 Centavos Coin 1943

This coin is a nice golden color, and I would grade it EF40.

On the obverse, it shows a slightly pudgy Liberty facing to the right, wearing a liberty cap and with an olive branch behind her head. The legend reads “Libertad” and the date is at 6:00.

On the reverse, there are 3 panels arranged horizontally. The left panel shows a sheath of wheat, the middle shows a large number 5, and the right shows a cows head. The legend at top reads “Republica Argentina” and the denomination is at the bottom of the coin: “Cenatvos”.
