I know you guys have come up with a decent idea of date and mint mark, but I have found that when I am having issues figuring out dates and mints, it is easier to do a rubbing of the coin. It brings out a lot of details that are harder to see with the naked eye.


WOW IDEA

Although it is very worn, I do not think it would make PO-1: too much details altogether (especially on the reverse).

FR-2. Very nice coin



I am concerned about the details on the reverse as you are too.

With the coin in hand I believe a TPGer will-can-might-should be able to get the mint, year on the obverse.

But again, there is a heap of details on the reverse.

Question for all:

If it was send to a TPGer, and the obverse was a clear PO-01 BUT the reverse was a clear FR-02 ~`~`~` I guess the best I could hope for was a FR-02

Am I correct?

Generally a TPG weighs the obverse more than the reverse. I would take that into account. but really what is the difference? why are you wanting this one graded? is it something special to you?

Some of us like 'lowballs'- myself included. Basically, coins which are problem-free and in PO-01 (usually certified).

Perhaps you could cover the obverse somehow and carry it around as a pocket piece for a month or so?

I still would like to see a good rubbing... Just plain notebook paper and a regular pencil should do the trick...

On eBay, I found this product


3-LED Light 45X Handheld Magnifier Reading Magnifying Glass Jewelry Loupe FE

Very low cost.

The fact it is a 45 power MAG, ~`~` is that too much power?

Or would I be better off getting a 10 power ~`~` or a 20 power?

My current glass is 90% shot.

Thanks to all

I tried again, but the paper I have in the house is too thick

At one time did we have something called "onion skin" paper?

I used to get mail from persons in Peru and the paper was sooooo thin.
