    Thinking about buying this despite the reverse black gunk and likely cleaning. I don't know much about the series, however. Does it appear to be genuine?

    She looks OK to me. Look her up, this looks like one of the date varieties.

    Looks like N-2 to me also. Or at least that attribution seems to fit best. EF40 seems about the right price. The only hesitation would be the black substance on the reverse.

  6. Looks genuine to me. Since I do not know what the surface conditions are like, I'd try to be no higher than 60% of problem-free price.

    Looks genuine to me, I expect the obv looked like the rev until someone cleaned it.

    I don’t know, something seems strangely unnatural. Maybe it’s just the cleaning that’s giving it that look, but I have a hunch that it’s been tooled.

    Real but surfaces look weird. A problem coin regardless. Unless it’s dirt cheap I’d stay away

    physics-fan3.14 You got any more of them.... prooflikes?

    The reverse is pitch black - not an attractive look. The obverse surfaces look... weird.

    Yeah, it appears to be genuine. But I wouldn't buy this coin.
