Hi! Just wanting to know if you think this coin has been cleaned and if it would be worth grading if it hasn't been cleaned. Also wanting to know what this coins grade would be? Thank you! Also, sorry about the picture quality... It's the best I could do.



Sorry for coming off as rude. I suffer from anxiety!

It looks reasonable to me, and don't be so hard on yourself for what are not bad pics at all!

I'm not a big proponent of TPG on coins worth this little, though (like $100).

My personal opinion is I would not get it graded, dont really think it would be worth it.

I am a terrible grader but place this at VG8, if you are a novice grader like myself this websit helps

As for being cleaned I would say maybe, but it wouldnt effect the value to much for me in that grade, but again to each his own.

Nice coin, too bad I need one atleast that nice to go in my book

I paid 121.95 for my VG8 PCGS 1921 S nickel. Yours appears to have more detail. I can't tell if it was cleaned or not by your photos but the one you pictured is a very nice coin to own. It has F15 to VF20 details in my opinion,

Would you say my tweaked images of your coin are a more accurate presentation of what your coin looks like?

Hard to say if this coin took a bath or not to clean up some of
the discoloration, it's certainly possible. Definitely a nice coin for your album
and I agree with nickel guys assessment of the grade. Heck of a lot nicer than
my 21s.

This date and mint are known to be unevenly and the horn is almost never there. This is due to there being an insufficient amount of metal to render a better and fuller strike.

Look at the tail. It shows on the hip.

That's indicative of a coin that is at least VF-20.

Hope this helps.

VF-20 details (cleaned) would be my vote,
