Nice . I like that 74 Philly a lot.
Truly one of the great all time eBay cherries, isn' t that the only one in a straight graded holder?
I wish! I thought it had a good chance of straight grading when I sent it in, but it came back VF Details, Cleaned. Oh well, it's still one of the more eye appealing ones out there.
XF-45 75-S Type 2 reverse
Part of the issue for me is that I'm not expert enough to pick out fakes online, and this type is notorious for that. So I guess I'll pay up for a certified example, though I'd rather not.
I presume not even chop marks may be depended upon as an indication of authenticity? They fake everything else in China so I guess they fake those too...
coins I bought in over 40 years. I think it is probably only a VF-30 if I am lucky. The reverse appears worse than the obverse.
amended: pcgs 35, NGC 40
Weak strike Looks like A XF-40 to XF-45
