    Not bad looking for her age. The only problem is someone tried to make her ear bigger. Shame on them as this coin still has mint redness in a few places. At least she was cheap.

    Considering the obvious wear, the "mint redness" was most likely from an old cleaning.

    I agree with kanga, the coin took an old cleaning and didn't retone in some spots

    If it were an ancient, it would be a centering mark.

    It's possible it was cleaned and retoned if there are no hairlines on the surface that I can see. I just posted another Large Cent and that's definitely cleaned. This is one of a number of $5.00 coins so no complaints from me.
