Old timers insist on luster to make 58
Schnickelfritz - I haven't heard that in a long while. Being from German background I heard that a lot as a child. A young boy that is always distracting but loveable. Not an official definition, but close.
Yes, you're spot on in your definition, much of it is all a matter of interpretation. A young boy who can be distracting, slightly mischievous or cunning at times, but yet lovable. That pretty much sums it all up. Are you a "schnickelfritz" as well?
Yes, and I have several sons, grandsons and great grandsons that definitely are.
Not sure. Pictures are all I have at moment. I don't think there would be any PVC damage.
The residual dark spots around the coin on both sides plus the stain on the obverse
could be toning I guess, but looks more like left behind residue/crud that was not removed from a dip which could have removed the luster. Assuming it is toning and straight grades then I am AU and higher than $100. But if it gets details, $40-$50.
"Spitzbub" could be compared to the English expression "top dog/main man/head honcho, boy acting as the boss, etc." with most likely a hint of sarcasm included. Spitz(e) is the equivalent of the English meaning the top, peak, point (think Austria with its high Alpine mountains); and bub(e) is a common German slang term for a boy.
