    Thoughts on value? I picked this up in a little lot of silver coins today. It has 8 tail feathers and according to Red book only 749,500 minted. I was more interested in the Peace Dollars in the lot at the time.

    High AU detail, but the surfaces look a bit strange. Is it really as lack-luster as it looks in the picture?
    My feeling is cleaned and overdipped, and I hesitate to stick my neck out, but I leave a bit of room for questions on authenticity.

    The only test I did was with a Rare Earth Magnet and that passed. I don't have scale. I agree with the early cleaning, I think it was cleaned myself.

    I think I've convinced myself it's real.

    Value? I'll throw out a suggestion of $50-$60 dollars and invite the CT crew to agree or disagree. :)

    A cleaning and a very klutzy one at that.

    Yeah, I am thinking maybe $50 by someone who wants to have an example.

    I wouldn't go any higher than $50.

    i advise people all the time against the perils of cleaning coins, but then throw out this caveat, “do what is going to bring you pleasure, if you want a nice bright shiny coin, and don’t care about loosing some value, then go ahead and clean just don’t wire brush it......
