clear closeup of the date and mint mark. Thank you.
How would you determine if a coin was cleaned?
Pretty clear on my end but in any case it is 1942 D
Any and all
The color and surfaces. A cent in that grade level should be a darker brown, usually. This one is too unnaturally orange, and the surfaces are flat looking yet overly shiny. These are a sure sign of cleaning/polishing.
It's hard to describe, and learning to spot cleaned coins does take some time, but once you've become accustomed to it, they usually stick out like the proverbial sore thumb.
The color is what bothers me, too!
Why would you post hazy pictures of a common date LWC to post titled “Any Comments?” and then include no details about what you think you may be seeing - even when asked?
