Does this coin look obviously cleaned to folks? Do you think it would pass muster with a TPG?

Also, what do you think is going on with In God We Trust? The "G" looks partly filled in, the "D" looks odd too.

Thanks.

Die chip in the G? I guess this could have been cleaned long ago, but I'm certain it would pass muster today. Very handsome.

Looks like it was washed at one time . Market acceptable .

Looks great. I don't have the gifted eye that many folks around here do but it doesn't look cleaned to me.

Agree with the above cleaned posts. A definite VF45, so close to EF. Add a post if you do send it off. Very nice indeed...

Yeah, I was thinking possible die chip as well.
A very pronounced "COD"

Ballyhoo - I'm guessing you meant definite EF45, almost AU. I've seen PCGS AUs that look like this.

I just bought a 1921 PCGS VF25 from Heritage, so just watching this one for now. I'm guessing it'll see heavier bidding soon, and will exceed my price range; just wishful thinking at this point. Nice to see a high(er) grade key date specimen still in the raw, when most other raw specimens in this issue are quite worn or more obviously dipped/cleaned.

Thanks.

Not to cast any doubt on its authenticity, but there is something fishy about that coin

...and no hidden angle to my comment either. Not trying to be a troll.

C'mon Earle, you're not going to get away with that. "Not to cast any doubt, but..."

Be specific, please.

It might have been "doctored", it doesn't appeared to be a fake but like to have in hand to examine.

COD...cast...fishy...angle...troll

Just luring people into the world of puns to see if they get hooked when I feed them a line like that. I'm fin-ished though. I won't tell any more tails. And I don't feel a bit gill-ty about it.

Very nice example of a key date coin.
