@Candice Wise, I hear what you're saying about the rudeness. Just take it all in and not worry about it. They are just crotchety old guys that are set in their ways. They treat everyone that way. They really don't mean to be rude (at least most of them don't)
I feel you... just a few days ago I announced my departure from this site but you can't give up on something because it’s hard... these people have good hearts and good intentions.. give it time and you’ll come to like these people
I see a well worn 117 year old coin (eddiespin can't do math well) that is what I would consider normal. You have documented it well in your photos but I wasn't able to enlarge them. Did you post them as FULL IMAGE? If you did, my page didn't show that. When I attempted to blow them up on my laptop, they became too distorted to tell what you were referring to. Keep up the search and educating yourself.
The coin is dated 1913. That's makes it 107 years old in my book. If it is 117 years old Candice has a gold mine as that would make it a 1903 Lincoln.
I understand what you are saying but in this area you owe an apology.
We all make mistakes and at times we all get cranky, for different reasons.
My bad. Apologies to Eddie and the OP. I'm the one that can't do math. LOL Where is my second cup of coffee?
When I first started on here with no clue whatsoever about numismatics or photography, I, like many newcomers assumed anything that looked a bit different must be an error of some kind. Some of the replies to my questions were, I thought at the time, a little short. When I thought about it I realised that the more knowledgeable members were trying to respond to 40 or more questions over various forums as well as making posts of their own, so of course some answers were going to be generic in nature rather than a detailed analysis of your coin.
Hang in there we all have good and bad days, but if you seriously want to learn this is the only place to be
why worry about minor things like opinions when you can focus on serious stuff like family, coin collecting, and such
never let opinions get under your skin just keep your head up and keep going
I wasn't referring to you my dear
I know and my comment wasn't directed at you either. The person made a mistake and apologize for it. I thanked them for doing so. We all make mistakes.
