For $80, that wouldn't be such a bad thing. But I'd have held out for a nicer piece without the scratches, even if it cost more.

$80 was fair, but then you own a 20 cent piece. I have had a similar one for so long I’ve forgotten where it is.

The 1875-CC is more memorable.

Just remember, if you buy a coin with a problem you'll always have a coin with a problem.

I definitely wouldn't have. That is a good size area of damage, and the 1875-S is a relatively common date with plenty of problem-free examples out there.

No, I would not have given that one a second look.

The little guy on your shoulder whispering "don't do it" was right this time, in my humble opinion.

I agree.

You will find a better one and when you do you will be glad you passed on this one.
