Thank you ! I missed that!
Agree... color looks off.
Thanks for talking me down ;-)
@C-B-D said, the color seems to be off... keep on searching ;-)
I don’t see hairlines, do I don’t know that it’s been cleaned. As to the color, these copper-nickel cents can be anything from bright white to tan to golden. Black or green is bad because that is corrosion.
That coin has major issues....not just color, I strongly suspect it has been doctored or tooled.
Hair line aren't the only clue to a coin that has been messed with....as to exactly how who knows.... but again I bet the owner would of cut that price enough to set a hook without scaring off the buyer.
One needs to ask just 1 question.....why hasn't the dealer had it slabed?
Why....?....because it won't pass by a TPG!
So he is just waiting for someone who does know what they are doing and pawning it off on them.
The first one (1857) is a PCGS MS-65
The second (1858) one is an NGC MS-64.
Sorry, I have read the instructions, but I still don't understand how to put pictures in the body of the text. Do you need a serving site, like Photobucker? If so that is a non-starter for me. I have been there and want nothing more to do with Photobucket.
And none of those look anything like the op coin.....so yes a good visual of what is correct and what looks like hell.
I am not saying this coin is good. There is probably a reason why it's not certified. That always goes through my mind these days where I see something that is say, $500 or more. It's just that I don't know that we can see enough to condemn it.
BTW PCGS sent the second one, the 1858, back to me in a body bag 20 years ago. NGC graded it. PCGS had not reason to do what they did, but that's the grading game. I've also had NGC refuse to grade a piece that PCGS graded. Go figure.
