The coin looks to be coated with a unique finish
What is circulation finish? Is it a applied finish cuz under 30x magnification this finish on this coin has a unique finish I haven't seen...
Can anybody tell me if there was ever a matte finish struck in 1885 if not was there a prototype or a Judd Maybe?[ATTACH]
Furham,Im thinking you. Might be amused with tarnishing on this coin if possible look at it closeup
It's on a 1922 peace $ looks to me like a cabon spot to me but under magnification it look like what you see . Yeah I'll go to paint and outline...
Ok I'll post pics as soon as I get the camera situated on the microscope I just purchased,have to load software on my pc. I appreciate your interest.
The first time I came about these digits was went I was convinced I was in possession a 1922. Early trial modified relief satin finish proof peace...
Wow!!, this is SuperDave right?
I apologize, but I'm surprised , you surely must have notice these digits on coins you have closely examined...
Well ,under magnification I can see guite a few 833's which all I guess was from minting process ( please can you elaberate on the use of the #833...
I'll post better pics.
Your good ! Yes it is ,but it has the making of a micro O and the toenail thing
No but I will right now, thank you!
I see a strong NE doubling on this coin and I'm figuring it's not mechanical
I'm new to the forum forgive my ignorance , the question I just posted was derected towards your comment
Thank you for the veiw. Just one question , from what I gather there should be no mint luster, so the question is what kind of luster should it have?
I'll try some better pics
