I wish it was mine. A guy I have dealt with before and follow as a seller has it up on eBay. Figured it would be a good caparison seeing PCGS graded this at 20.

I don't know about PCGS, but like Coinfrog, you couldn't talk me down below VF-20. The OP coin shows a weak strike on the reverse. Would be great if AcesKings or paralyse can comment on this.
Collector of all classic US coinage.

Taka a look at the rims and denticles on the coin in question. That's rub not strike. f-12 here.

I say this one is wear, especially on reverse.


It's both on the OP coin. There is some wear, but it didn't start out as a fully detailed coin either.

Here's a PCGS VF20 - do you want to argue weak strike and tell me PCGS will grade these BOTH at 20?


CBH you have to compare the same years (really the same Overtons too) to each other. The 24/1 doesn't really have much baring to the 1825 grading.
