I just won this coin for $60 in an online auction which is right at or below melt value. It looks to be more than just normal wear to me...thoughts?
It also has a mintage of a mere 2900 total coins, making it a scarce coin, so I took a chance on it. Any thoughts and opinions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks











The seller also guarantees authenticity, so worse case scenerio, itís worth itís weight in gold.



It's time to take that "leap of faith" with your portfolio and move into "Tangible Assets"!
Take physical possession of your hard earned life savings before the inevitable and undoubtedly the largest market correction in history happens and you find yourself waking up broke one morning in the very near future!

It has the look of a heavy greaser, but I'm not quite sure.

Greaser is a possibility, but gold is fairly soft, so I suspect just circulation wear.
Mine looks very similar to yours with the obverse wear of mine more like your reverse wear.

It has been badly dinged up over the years, from circulation wear. It has Post Strike Damage on the rims (happened after it left the U.S. Mint). The metal was pushed over and flattened.
Errors and Varietys.

I think it's an 1874. The 1871 had a wider date.
