Yes...that is what concerns me also.
@GDJMSP might chime in
Now, if the photos are lacking, and there is actually lustrous I could be convinced otherwise, but I have simply seen too many to not have a good expectation of what the coin is.
Thank you...this helps me a great deal. So I'm thinking the $155 dollar asking price is too much.
As always, wait for some other opinions here sir. Its a special coin. Very low mintage, but priced barely above the common Rays issue of 1866. I always allow room I could be completely wrong.
It's been cleaned, that's the easy part. At this price no way would I shell out that much for it. I'd rather have a lower graded coin than one that's been cleaned.
I'd agree, but I'd say harshly/improperly cleaned.
I can easily agree with that.
Not possible. It is a die crack.
opinion on a coin which we do not have "in hand" & which is further compromised by a picture through the holder. While I tend to agree with the previous comments, here is something to consider:
What or who is the source of the coin? Where did it come from? Did the seller find it MD'ing?...has it been in his family for awhile? Is the seller a novice or someone who has experience (read: collector) with coins? Is it from a pawn shop or estate sale?...etc., etc.
The pic, taken through a clear material (plastic film) will always be distorted to some degree (sometimes more noticeable than others), & this one (to me) looks as though there is a reflection on the reverse between 10 & 11 o'clock (& other "marks" could just be reflections). "Photographed thru" distortions can wreak havoc on an accurate analysis.
If it is a real, problem free coin, it seems to be a very reasonable acquisition cost for this coin. But with so many questions & things to consider as to the honesty of this coin,...it does seem that you should let this one go. (But if it were me, I have disposable cash & would probably take a run at it - of course, I'm one of those who doesn't get into a tizzy about most cleaned coins - this one most likely been handled by someone who fought in the Civil War!)
