Raw, ungraded ? What made you choose a coin like this over a TPG certified ?
It’s more of a rub than a ding
@Kentucky and find it distracting. Otherwise, I think it is a beautiful coin. Just a point of preference. Normal coin orientation always looks better.
Looks like a ding to me.
Thank you, what’s matters is that I am happy with it.
That is the only thing that matters. Good luck to you.
Well when it comes down to dropping that kind of cash, I still get cold feet. This is a compromise that I can live with.
I sold the best one I ever had for about $18,000 if memory serves. It was a very Choice AU in an NGC holder, which would not have shamed an otherwise Mint State Morgan Dollar set.
I was think of the 1893-S dollar, but the 1893-P is pricey enough.
The 93s was a f12 pcgs graded. When you have the cash to buy it in your hand, you have second thoughts. This is still a decent chunk of change but I walked out with cash in my pocket.
If I was paying with a card I most likely would have bought one. Cash allows you to think about it. I looked at a 76cc trade dollar that was AU for sure but there was two scratches on the back. Small but there and it was possible to get back a AU details. Too big of a chance for me.
The trouble with marks that you see right away is that they tend to stick in your mind. Every time you see the coin, you remember them. That takes away part of the fun for me, which why I usually pass on such pieces.
"Can I live with it?"
If yes, then buy it.
