I have a feeling the coin was cleaned. But is that a grease error on the reverse? Kept sealed inside a plastic holder by bolts! You judge...

YES - Cleaned
YES - Grease on reverse, most likely

Very cool die flow lines too.

Not likely grease, They're often weakly struck in that area.

XF-45 details, weak strike in some areas. Too much luster for VF-35 or EF-40 IMO.

Nice looking coin though it has a recent cleaning. I would also grade it at EF-40.

Thanks, guys... your opinion means so much to me. This collection is for my son. I know it isn't much, but I hope he'll treasure it someday.

Yeah, I think so - the slightly-elevated A in STATES and the shape of the top bar of the 5 tend to support it.
The best thing about a bicycle is that it uses no gasoline, therefore the chance of fiery death is greatly reduced.

Easy way to tell...This is the "Laced Lips" die marriage! (Since both the obverse and reverse were unique to this die marriage).

Check for an engraver's mistake joining the lips and then the lower lip to the chin.

@Moe...are you agreeing? The lip is what I was looking at but I dont have this variety and working off pictures is somewhat difficult.
