Can anyone make out the last digit/number?

I wish were 1877!:thumb:
1,2,3,4,5,6, or 8,9, 0.
anything but a 7.
[edited to add, I see Penny Lady beat me to the punch]
Very hard to be certain though.
Could even be a nine, but it is not a 1877
If you have a photo processing program, you might try changing the color or even change it to black and white or sepia colored. I find that I can see things after changing it to B/W photo mode than I can with regular color.
I think you need to say - all business strike 1877's have shallow N. I believe the proof 1877's have a bold N. Clearly this is not a proof - not even a circulated proof. At least from what I can see on the rims.
I can't begin to guess what it is - early I thought it was a 98, but at home it almost looks like a 79.
Nice find anyways
I will do some color soon!
