Honest reply is 'yes' ... that 1909-S exhibits evidence of a prior cleaning.

What else is in the roll?

Never buy unopened rolls off eBay...

That coin is cleaned. If you didn't open it up, return the roll.

If you call steel wool or sand paper abrasion cleaning, then yes, it's been cleaned. Harshly. If you bought that from who I think you bought it from, it is a sham. Not saying there isn't some value to the "stuff" in these rolls, but think about it. Would YOU sell true, old, unsearched rolls with 09's, flying eagles, bust dimes, Three Cent pieces, Indian heads on the end? Of course not. They are selling hope and wonder. That is all.

that roll hasn't ever been opened, the seller rolled it himself a week or so before the auction.

Welcome to CC!

I'm sorry you have fallen victim to the "sealed, unopened roll" scam. That end coin has been harshly cleaned and is nothing more than a seed coin to trick buyers into bidding on the roll. If you would have joined CC sooner, you could have learned and saved a lot of money. The "unsearched roll" topic has been discussed here for years.

I should add - while that is indeed a key date coin, it is about G-VG at best and worth around $30-40 in that condition.

How much did you pay ... that's the key to whether this is a deal or not

Bank wrapped rolls can have circulated coins it in. If the guy advertised it as a Uncirculated Roll then he lied. If you bought it as unopened rolls then you got what he said he was selling. If is appears to be altered in anyway I would return it if you don't want it. That end looks like it was rolled by a machine and not altered. Maybe the guy has a coin rolling machine.

Looks like they don't do returns.

"Sale on this roll is final and it is being sold "as is" with no returns accepted, since once opened, the roll loses its unique value."
