Obvious vertical hairlines on the obverse plus an unnatural chrome-like shine confirm this has been abrasively cleaned. This date jumps in price when it makes mint state, so someone likely shined it up to pass it as uncirculated.

I'm sad, even if it was only $26, although I agree with you guys

$26 should have been your first clue. Problem-free, an 1896-O with AU53-AU55 sharpness is realistically a $200+ coin all day long.

If it seems too cheap to be true, it usually is (but not always!)

@paralyse, you're right. And I figured it would have something off about it. I guess I just got my hopes up :/
