    If its a 1867 with rays Proof, it might still have a good bit of value, considering under 60 are estimated to exist?
    The other (1868) has damage too but may actually have a nice die crack?? 20190804_140008.jpg 20190804_141729.jpg 20190804_141808.jpg 20190804_141743.jpg

    I don't know if you have noticed yet but your 1867 has 2 holes in it. That is considered damage o_O

    Might of been done to make it a spinning type of toy with the use of a string. I think it was called a whizzer?

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    What characteristics do you see that would indicate the damaged coin was originally a proof and not a business strike?
