@Goldmember: That's beautiful! that's the one I was asking about in the 'show some bullion' forum. WOW. Love that design.
All, I am curious about bullion dealers like APMEX who sell early 20th century gold as bullion. Does anyone here know if they clean/polish or 'whiz' these old beauties then send them out to investors. And if so, is this where a lot of cleaned low grade circ. coins try to re-enter the coin collecting world?
It's a shame what some people will do to these wonderful coins.
Whizzed coins generally have a very different appearance from coins that have been wiped, cleaned, etc. I didn't see anything in your images that would lead me to believe the coin has been whizzed.
Some people use the words "whizzed" and "cleaned" interchangeably, though I believe it is a mistake to do so.
I do not believe that to be the case.
Ditto. Whizzing destroys luster. This coin still has luster.
