coin: A





Coin B:



There's no such thing as a stupid question. Well, not really. That's just something I tell myself because I ask so many.

Both amazing coins.. However... I'd pick coin A.

Coin B has great details. It has a few blemishes here and there, but overall, very eye appealing. That being said, my gut tells me that coin has been clean harshly, and very recently.

Coin A appears to have a few die breaks, as well as a few scratches as well. It appears a bit more worn in areas, but overall, I think it has more original surfaces. For a 200+ year old coin, I kind of want to see a bit of grunge on the coin. It's not 'dirty' per say, instead, I consider that it's "covered in history".

I would like to learn more about detecting cleaning, especially from images, but I like the look of B better.

Coin B for eye appeal. Although I'd take A if you'd give it to !e!

This basically.

I'd take coin B because the reverse of Coin A is mottled which detracts from the design and the eye appeal. Neither one has original looking surfaces.

Still, 1799 is the most common date in the series. "Select don't settle" is good advice here.

B for sure, but not wild about either of them.

I agree with B
My name is Devin, and I have been collecting now, for around 2 years. I love early American coppers. I set up at coin shows and sell on eBay with my dad (I own most of the coins we sell, and he owns most of the currency), and most of all... I have fun!

Visit my eBay store, I have lots of BINS and auction style listings:

Not a hard choice, really.
