Or was it ever in a PCGS slab? Did the seller superimpose the PCGS title over the coin to make it look official?


Was in one hence the trueview but was cracked out. Counter productive to show the trueview even with the old cert number scrubbed as everyone knows what that means

You made the right decision, BassPro. It would've been nice to have a little more warning for us, though. While you can buy beautiful-looking cleaned or, otherwise altered rare coins, you should know exactly what you're getting into and should be paying about 1/2 of the regular price.

I'm not entirely sure the obv of this half was wire-brushed because, if it had been, there still wouldn't be nicks showing on the neck and lower face and in the field. The smaller pics do seem to be the same or a very similar coin but it does seem suspicious to me, too. For this kind of money, better to get the coin in a PCGS slab.
