I was really interested in this until I saw.....that scratch......how could this get such a good grade?

Shouldn't this be a details coin damaged/scratched?

Thanks for input

Assuming the scratch is actually on the coin (seems to be), I tend to agree.

This is another "lopsided" coin. I would venture to say the reverse is what took it up to XF45. The details of the wheat berries and kernels in the ear of corn could by rights push the reverse to a low end 50, but the Obverse is really struggling with a 40...combine the two it becomes a 45, but yes, it is not appealing at all.

That scratch is not "intentional", a heavy bag mark would do that, that's not considered "damaged" to be detailed, wasn't done in a bad cleaning either, and this to me even merits a good bath(and not in acetone!)

That hit on the face will not detail this coin . I tend to agree with PCGS EF-45 . I'm just not a fan of very dark toning .
Also I would not dip a circulated silver coin .
Don't take life too seriously and remember it is just a passing fad ......

Blast white with very good luster on obverse and reverse. Strike is a bit above average for many MS63. Two scratches under "In God" on obverse and other minor scratches under magnification but overall Beautiful coin.


According to the description, the scratches are on the coin. I would pass on this one.

Sellers pics are magnifying it like digital pictures can do. They're light which is why some angles even in his pics you don't see them. They most likely dropped it a grade because of it
