Thank you E&V it's on the fence between AU and Bu! I only wish that the pictures could show that.

@toot, I agree that this is a nice coin. Is that a partial fingerprint in the field in front of Lincoln's forehead? If so, I wonder if it is too late to remove it.

I didn't notice that! If it is it's not mine! I wear gloves
But I'm going to take a look at it now. If it is a fingerprint, what do you suggest? I don't think acetone takes off fingerprints but I've heard that rubbing alcohol does if it's caught soon enough.

Nice find Toots!

Unfortunately, preserving it with pure acetone has never worked on removing fingerprints...nor anything else short of a dremmel.

I did a PSA on a previous post asking noobs not to eat Lay's potato chips and search coins with the same hand; the oil, grease and salt aren't helping the hobby.

Since it isn't super-fresh, I think that a soak won't likely do anything for that print unfortunately. On the plus side, it doesn't really detract too much from the coin IMHO.

Thanks guys! I checked it out last night, it is a fingerprint. It's been soaking in acetone all night. I'll remove it shortly air dry it and stick it in a 2x2.
