Here is a 1929 Buffalo nickel. It's titled "Estate Find" on eBay, along with 100s of other nickels. They all have a similar look, maybe it's the camera? Or maybe they acid washed the coins or something? What do you think of this one?

I'd say AU 55+, but the pancake obverse strike wrecks this common date whatever the grade.

This seller has been known to clean his coins in the past using scotch-brite pads; I would not buy from him.
