That said, it takes awhile to identify cleaned coins, at least it took me awhile but once I figured it out I was really happy as I once bought a polished gold $1 Indian and I didn't even know until I sent it in to be graded! Welcome back OWC!!
I made that mistake before. I do better with copper than silver and especially not gold. I cant differentiate between cleaning lines polish lines and mint adjustments.
Then you paid a really good price! Those coins are perfect for what you are getting them for
well over melt, even if harshly cleaned.
I bought a 20th Century Coin Types display on eBay for several times melt on the basis that the Barber half and SLQ both appeared to have a lot of detail left. Most of the coins were cleaned, including the Barber half and possibly the SLQ -- but after selling just those two, I was already in the black.
When I saw the first post, I was thinking, "These would make good type set display coins." Therefore, I find your plan sound.
