I like that approach - especially if the coin has a weak strike. Thanks
Looks like the coin has nice surfaces and color as well.
Six bucks well spent, I think.
For this coin, I would grade it based on the amount of luster present (which is difficult to judge from your pictures). If there is a decent amount of luster left, it is AU; if the luster is missing, or confined only to the very protected spaces, it is EF.
It is impossible to judge the luster from your (static) pictures.
Exactly as it should be, then. I believe "satiny" is the most commonly used term. "Sheeny" is also an apt description, but unfortunately, that particular word also served as an antisemitic slur once upon a time.
You'd probably have to be older than 70 to be up on that particular ethnic slur. I think its heyday was even before your time. Happily, it may be obsolete or nearly so now. I saw it in a movie about (but not contemporary to) Depression-era gangsters, and wondered what it meant.
I would too. Nice looking coin. I like the Danish designs.
LordM, I had never heard that slur--would not want to but my foot in my mouth (which is a semi-regular occurrence). In fact I only recently learned the origination of the grandfather clause, can be benign but not once you learn it's past https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grandfather_clause .
