I just started to collect these Coindog, so, I'm going to give the grading thing a try... 1865 (fancy 5) big dig on the reverse, looks cleaned on the obverse,VF details. 1864, slight corrosion, F-15 1864, probably the best of the lot, VG-8
One of my photos came out the same way...obverse different color than reverse. I don't know what causes it. I recently found an 1864 2 CENT in junk box at my storage. According to PCGS photograde it's between XF40/AU53, and has 225* rotated reverse. The problem is it's loaded with dozens of tiny pit marks. How bad would you think it affects the value?
