I get the impression it is. Pretty sure I see fine lines on the obverse. Just need others with more experienced eyes than mine. Thanks in advance.

372330582652 here's your link ( just the number works on CCF )


I don't buy from that seller ( many say the images are "enhanced" and you don't get what is presented in the pictures. I cannot say whether this is true as I have no experience with them. ) but they look like die polish marks to me.
My favorite album!

How do you just get the number? I do almost everything on my phone so maybe it's different if you're on a laptop or PC.

It seems that a lot of GSC's coins are very "clean".

I don't know how they continue to sell. I got burned 15 years ago, before all of the buyer protections. More new collectors I guress?

Run away from this seller. That coin will not look anything like what is pictured

I do not recommend purchasing from Great Southern Coins. Their photography is designed to hide the cleaning and damage on a coin.

Well, I don't know how a phone works but I simply copied and pasted the number at the tail end of your link and put that number in my response post.

Somehow CCF interprets a number like that automatically and it directs you to an eBay listing. You might have to type in the number, I don't know.

Just read their negative feedback about cleaned coins.
Also they have been known to sell counterfeits.

So STAY AWAY

GSC coin killers. Photo shop and dipping experts. Blah to them.

I will add on a positive note, that it is perfectly safe to buy slabbed coins by major tpgs from GSC. Sometimes they have hard to find dates but if raw is your game, look elsewhere.
Hi, my name is MikeF and I'm a degenerate coin collector. I also like adventure, big trucks, long walks on the beach and the Kansas City Chiefs.

I had the same problem. I eliminated that problem and just bought a slabbed MS61 for $150. Not from GSC though.

This is the one I just bought. I thought it was a good price.

It's already in the Dansco.
