First, welcome to the neighborhood!
Take a quarter, any quarter! Lay it flat on a sheet of very fine emery paper. Place one of your fingers on the quarter and begin rubbing it back and forth against the emery paper. Do this for the better part of one day, and tell us what it looks like when you stop.
Since it is damaged post mint..
Less than 25 Cents
Meh, you can do a lot with a hammer.
Maybe. But I would think using a hammer would cause the coin to loose it's perfectly round shape.
Welcome to CT.
Sure! Send me this one, and I'll prove it.
Welcome to CT Leroy.
Next time, please post Full Image photos. Here is my usual spiel:
For the best results, you should post "in focus," FULL IMAGE photos (after you upload your photo, two buttons appear: Thumbnail and Full Image, click Full Image and your photo appears full size on your post and are easily enlarged by clicking on it). Photograph coins on neutral backgrounds like black, grey, or white. Crop out superfluous background so just the coin shows (you can use https://www.remove.bg for free), and post photos with correct orientation so members don't have to turn their computer in some awkward fashion to view it properly. While it isn’t always necessary, it is nice to show both the obverse and reverse, even if your question is just about one side. Members can often give more valuable information having both sides to evaluate. Add close ups of areas you have questions about and make your questions as definitive as possible so we know what you are asking for. And try to have the best lighting possible to show the most favorable photo of the coin. Hope this helps in the future. Good luck.
