    Blurry pics of a 1907 "BU" Barber dime. I feel like this one is going to go for a lowball price because of low quality pictures. BUT, a 1907 barber dime in this condition would be worth about $150 as long as its not polished. Nt a very credible seller, but all his reviews are 100% positive.

    Heres the link if anyone wants to bid on it. I probably won't. But if you do win it, tell me what I missed out on.

    At best it's polished. At worst it's fake.

    I'm guessing it was polished-at least that is what the photo suggests to me.

    Terrible pictures! I wonder if the seller can put some more oil from his fingers on the coin?

    I guess there could be a trivial percent chance it is a proof (there are 1907 Philly proof Barber dimes) but that chance is almost zero. I'm sticking with polished as the most likely answer.

    Looks like someone placed a bid just now (not me). So maybe there is a chance we find out more.

    In a word, no, it’s not worth the risk.

    Weird there was a bid but it ended with no bids (either someone retracted it or the seller canceled the bid).

    Looks polished to me. One of most common ways that scammers sell damaged or counterfeit coins is to post bad pictures.
