Hey all,

Thanks for your help so far! Much appreciated! Anyone know if any of these are an unusual variety? Meaning besides the normal narrow 9? I am just not savy enough to tell the difference!
Thanks!

Fine, VG and a Very Fine. I don't want to spoil your day but they've all been cleaned. Great year to love!

How can you tell if they have been cleaned?

Instead of a natural almost chocolate brown appearance the coins have an orange-brown appearance. They've all been cleaned in the past. So so many have been. Still a great year to collect!

Recommendations on how to get a good picture of a coin? I feel like these don't portray them very well, especially 2 & 3 which have almost a rainbowy luster (if that is the right way to describe that). Thanks!

I've taken thousands of pics of large cents. What I find best is natural light. Not in direct sunlight. But close. A basic digital camera with macro does fine.

Top coin is a Haxby PC59-333 http://www.vickycents.com/obv-o33.html.

The other two are hard to tell as photos are a bit blurry. The second one looks like a E group reverse (which is about 1/2 of all the 1859 cents.) the last one looks like a F or G group reverse mabee. Any DCs visible in hand and you can easily ID it. Repunched letters on obverse are also very helpful, just match them to photos on Jim Haxby's website.

Tamarin..
you are correct with your statement and grades.

Ed, is Jim paying you commission?
I have trrrrrrried to get an answer out of whitman about shipping cost to Canada
they say they need my full address......NOT, as it is all the same to all of Canada.
and I am not about to reveal my address so they have one more in their data base and to send me advertising, unless I can buy the book.

You have said they have rainbow lustre. That's not lustre as it refers to coins; lustre is the original shine that is on mint coins. For copper coins, almost ever coin under AU grade will not have lustre, as exposure to air will turn the coin brown. For silver coins,most below EF will also not have any lustre left, except maybe a slight bit remaining in the low areas like between leaves and letters on nice VF coins. Even most EF ones lack most of the lustre.

The first coin you posted may be original colour, but the other 2 have been cleaned with a dip meant for silver, which turns the colour orangey-red, then slowly oxidized to the colours you have.

I agree with the VG, F and VF (VF-30). Those collectors giving VF and EF had better hone up on grading - don't go by ACG or eBay's asyn grading, or you'll be very disappointed when you try to sell your coins.
