It’s like a finger print. I have three to compare. Really have been studying. I also have a John Adams I will post after the George. Please tell me what y’all think.

    Exactly what it is, a fingerprint. The oils in the skin actually etch into the coin surface damaging it.

    Agreed finger prints e.t.c all are spenders to me.

    If a thumb is a finger , why don't the call it a Thumb finger ?

    • It’s more accurate to describe a thumb as one of five digits that we have on each hand, rather than as a finger. ‘Digit’ is the technical term which covers fingers, thumbs, and toes in humans, and similar appendages in some animals. The thumb is the short, thick first digit of the human hand. The other four digits are our fingers.
    • Exception: Five-finger discount

    Be sure to check your Washington Prez dollars for "Missing Edge Lettering".

    The coins are gold plated and it does not appear that any of them have issues. Spend or save, it's up to you. Thanks for posting them, good luck.

    What makes you think that they're gold-plated?

    That wouldn't be an exception because they are all digits.

    Correct Pam, that’s a finger or thumb print. Please check the edge to see if the lettering is missing.

    Hard for finger prints or thumb prints to etch gold. Jim

    Finger print that probably has been there long enough that you will not be able to remove it. Devalues the coin, if it were worth more than face value, which I see nothing to show that it is.
    @Mr.Q - Not gold plated. Where did that idea come from?

    The President Dollars are not plated and they are not gold. Their composition is as follows:
    Composition Copper with manganese brasscladding:
    88.5% Cu
    6% Zn
    3.5% Mn
    2% Ni
    It has a fingerprint and it’s worth one dollar unless the edge lettering is missing.
