Just bought a nice Type 1 Buff, only problem is seller said has a "golden tone" on it as seen in these pix of theirs. I tried to accent the pic a bit but this is just about how I figure it'll look in hand. I grade at AU50 but wonder if this "toning" isn't from a chemical cleaning perhaps, or possibly PVC rubbing on wear spots. Your opinions on grade and coloring appreciated, other thoughts...keep to yourself




Thankx!

When I was a kid I used to clean my coins. Some cleans turned them yellow ... not usually this yellow ... but it may some parts of my Morgan dollars look like they had brass inside (below worn areas).

Ahh ok here goes nothing ; you obviously bought this coin knowing you can hopefully remove all that green slime. This Buffalo could be a 55 as long as you don't mind experimenting .
Don't take life too seriously and remember it is just a passing fad ......

Really hard to tell anything from photos. The photos do make the coin look like there could be problems.

Can't grade from these pics. Probably a problem coin. Better pics when you get it in hand will help.

I can't get a feel for the depth with these pics. Maybe tilt the coin a little.

If that color is even remotely close to the actual coin, I'd send it back PDQ and cross that guy off for good.

Be interesting to see new pics when you get it. You must have gotten it for a bargain.

I did get it for a good price, less than $10 at an on line auction... and no, can't just send this back unfortunately, it's the risks I take for the lesser prices...and much better deals usually...

My inner optimist says it is a bad photo and will look better in hand.
