This coin has been graded AU 'plugged'. At 11 o'clock on the obverse.
Can anyone see this? I can't.

You can clearly see a smoothed over look where It was plugged, to conceal it. Still it's an attractive piece.

The area looks to be just to the right of Star 8 and NW of the tip of Liberty's cap; then just below the eagle's talon holding the arrows on the reverse.

The plug shows more on the reverse, the field by the eagles left talon (viewers left).

I see a smooth egg shape spot at 11 O'clock in front of the L in Liberty on the obverse.

You can see the plug at the top of the turban, before the "L" of Liberty. The coin had an old cleaning, was ex-jewelry and is justified in having a details grade. Personally, it has too many problems for me to buy something like this. I would much rather have a problem-free coin than this one. Pass.

Plugged coins are usually far more obvious, and show round plug marks.
I don't think it was. Similar planchet marks show faintly on other parts of the coin. It looks like a high-end R6+ and worth a lot.

Gold is soft and easier to plug well than silver. It also does not tarnish as much making for matched surfaces after the plugging and smoothing. It will probably bring $8K or so. Normally I avoid big money problem coins, but this is pretty rare even for Heraldic Eagle gold.
The collection is in your mind. Dispose of your albums and free your mind from the tyranny of holes.

There are a few good restorers than can do a plug that is almost undetectable.

Hardly a problem when it looks as good as this!
And not too different from the Heritage BD-9 which sold at $376,000

If you want this specific variety, and if the choice is between an $8K price for this one verses a $100K+ price for a similar but non-problem piece I could understand the temptation. Will the coin continue to satisfy after the purchase? That's a question you should consider before placing your bid.

Look at the Heritage coin https://coins.ha.com/itm/1799-10-la...Position=0|0
There is a faint rectangular mark on BOTH sides at exactly the same place as on the Stack's coin, but that one is not described as 'plugged'.
