It sold for $1680. Oh my goodness...

I for one have no idea what you're trying to say with this post so I will watch until someone clarifies.
I think he's referring to the huge scratches on the obverse and it still being straight-graded.

Staple scratch is the big thing. Tooling marks at the date and star 13 might even be worse though!
Uuuuuhhhh. This actually isn't the first time I've seen scratched coins in PCGS holders. But that scratch in left field is horrendous...... edited
ETA: Somebody paid somebody off, somewhere along the way...... That's what I reckon. That doesn't look like just a mistake..... That is like the first thing you see...... I could be drunk off my butt and see that scratch. Wow. Even less faith in PCGS now.
Coin was graded at 4:59 p.m. PST on a Friday. OR they let the customer service reps grade while they all went out to eat.
Maybe it was a crossover and the holder looked like this....
that's pretty bad.... that would be a hot potato if I sent that in for grading and it came back a 55....
That's strong money for this coin as well. Sold recently. I wonder if it will be sent back to PCGS for their guarantee?
You sure they went out to eat? Maybe a little seshy sesh in the grading room. Just sayin.
My bad, everyone. Those are just more die cracks. Yeah....
Paid at least 3x to much
On the right appears a die crack. But on the left that automatically details the coin.
And it's been cleaned. I'll go $350.
Think he's saying 1680 is a tad to high. Like 1200 to high
The horizontal line in the left obverse field is a massive scratch, not a die crack. The marks around the last star also appear to be scratches.
I guess scratches cost extra. Who knew?
+1 on the cleaning.
Holy smokes! The only way I could possibly justify it being straight graded is if it was a strike through... except it certainly doesn’t look like a strike through.
If I bought a G4 sight unseen with a scratch of that magnitude I would be fairly upset. If I bought the OP coin sight unseen as an AU55 I would be very upset!
This is not the first time I've seen such dreck in a Heritage auction. It seems every time I view my targeted lots in person before a FUN auction I am disappointed in 75% of them over stuff like this.
What's different in this case is that the issues were captured in the photos. In my experience, the issues are usually concealed / minimized by taking the photos from favorable vantage points.
