Well, since so much time has elapsed since he saw our requests, I'm going to knock the value down by half...........12-1/2c!
Die Polishing is the process of cleaning the dies used to strike a coin. Over the course of the life of a working die, dirt and grime may accumulate on the die itself. In addition, the die may acquire other imperfections that a mint worker might try to polish away in an attempt to strike "cleaner" coins.
The die was polished out prior to minting your coin.
There appears to be a faint and partial part of the initials present. Yes, it was polished out at the Mint. Nice but your not going to retire.
Also had another coin here. Old one. Do any of you think it might it worth sending of the grading or not. Thx
