    I have a hard time determining if a coin has been cleaned. im trying to figure out if this coin has been cleaned. I can’t decide. What do you think? Thanks in advance.
    Edit: Iguess I should say "improperly Cleaned"

    Looks original to me. Not often they come around that nice in circulation.
    Set break?

    It's is one of the ones I got the other day in that dump I found. all 60's 70's and a few 80's quarters that appear to have been broken out of mint sets. Almost all in remarkable condition.

    love old coins, ldhair, DEA and 4 others like this.

    To me I think it’s 100% original. I’m not seeing any bad signs of a cleaning.

    Looks okay to me also. What made you think it may have been cleaned?

    I would say no. It does not have hairlines, and it does not look polished.

    Cleaned? probably not. Seems to have "buff" marks; and sure looks like a soft strike example

    Just the overall nice luster. Not used to seeing a 50 year old coin this nice. Although the whole roll was really nice, just wanted to make sure. The one i'm going to post below has some marks (Striations?) running across it. So I was thinking maybe buffed? it has great luster in hand.
