der 100$ I think people were nervous about the sellers pictures because he made them look black. Alright thank you for the info just wanted to make sure it wasn’t going to get the coin sent back AU details.
@furham is correct if that scratch is on the coin.
Wait and see what others think.
I don’t know to much myself but dabble a little bit I know this is one of the better ones I’ve seen yet!
That’s probably what it is I’ve purchased a handful of these types and most have it with the same smell
I will take a look under the loupe when I get home here soon I don’t think I saw anything but the coin is very dark I may have missed it. What do you think they would grade it as with that scratch? Or would it be not graded?
I’ve heard that from other people as well.. hmm so now I need to decide if I should auction it or take a chance and get it graded..
@Insider in it would grade clean or not... now wait
It's probably some kind of oil (olive, maybe?) rather than VerdiCare, because:
1) VerdiCare has no particular smell, at least as far as I've noticed.
2) VerdiCare eventually dries and leaves a very subtle satin-y sheen, not an oily look.
3) And most obviously, if it were VerdiCare, there wouldn't be those spots of verdigris on the reverse.
@Insider in it would grade clean or not... now wait."
The little cap pistol has been summoned. The coin is high grade but "nasty." It needs to be cleaned up to remove the oil (usually Coin Care) and the built-up crud that collects on oiled Large cents coins over time. IMO, not worth the price of grading as it is now. Looks like some light corrosion (black color).
A "doctor" would strip it and recolor it so the surface is uniform.
Thank you!! From everyone’s advice I’m going to skip the grading and find the rightful owner for it
