I was seeing what everybody thought on this coin whether it was acid washed or not. I have seen quite a few of them and a lot of good examples on here from everybody and with this one there is no pitting or corrosion is real smooth....

@skippy, it looks more like environmental toning to me than an acid bath. Is the weight still within spec?

Agree. Looks to have sat partially underneath another coin for some extended time in an enclosed environment.

Spence it weighs 5.01 grams. which is pretty much right on the money as I figured it being environmental or something because it looks like maybe another coin had been on top of it wherever it had laid I don't know but I have never seen one right down to the copper like that before.
