Paddy..... Didn't the IHC you found detecting on the beach have similar toning?
I'll keep you posted.
Please post better pictures here once you get it in hand. That way you might be able to tap the experts to see if it is worth sending for grading. If it's an obvious fake at the at point then no use throwing good money after bad by sending in to be graded.
Thanks again everyone for all you advice and comments.
Good luck! We are all hoping for the best for you! Please post the results once you get them in.
until I got some expert opinions here or local coin shops before submitting
for grading. Hope it works out for you.
Out of curiosity, did you submit them personally to NGC or did someone submit on your behalf? I'm just curious because I always get surprised when people submit on their own. I've been collecting for years and have only submitted two coins to NGC.
You mentioned that you got the coin "online" if it was an eBay seller and it comes back fake you should be able to get your money back.
I mostly agree with this, but through the dark one can see that the coin has very little wear to it. If the photos are a fair account of the color, then I may have my doubts about it, but I otherwise agree with the others so far on page 1 that it's a great coin.
I was one of the suckers a number of years ago that bought a roll of cents with S mint IHC on the ends; both reverses looked MS. In hand one was an obvious electrotype counterfeit. The other was a nice MS but the color was off. I sent it in for grading and it came back unc details. I contacted the seller about the counterfeit and we settled for me getting a partial refund (the roll contained anther two 1908-S IHC and a couple semi key LCs). Sometimes I'm embarrassed to admit that I fell for the end roll scams. I guess we all do stupid things in life.
Regarding the OP coin the color just seems off. I hope that it straight grades but it wouldn't shock me if it didn't.
i bought this from a reputable online auction house. If it is a fake I will certainly let them know but the listing did say it was not certified. If it turns out to have been cleaned or grades details I'll have to take my medicine.
Enjoy your day.
