nice whizzing job there
Well, that did not take long... good eyes everyone!!
I found this coin going through an old unsearched sack of Canadian cents. This sack does have the odd BU early Elizabeth II and George VI cents and this one jumped out at me.
It is the first time I have seen this good of a whizzed small cent from the Elizabeth II era. Anyone who knows this series, also knows just how hard it is to get a nice, red gem 1953 SF cent. This coin was mint state to begin with, and someone decided to "enhance" it by whizzing.
I am glad I caught this one, and have added this coin to my teaching collection of altered small cents.
