A new seller of individual coins showed up on ebay some weeks ago. I just look at Lincolns but they were all high grade harshly cleaned and listed as BU++. Checked and he's got 52,000 feedbacks so obviously been around a long time though.
Been waiting for one of these coins with some interest to come up cheap. So I saw a DDR
on a 1934 and bought it for $1.61 plus shipping (obviously people can see it's harshly cleaned and not GEM BU red as in the item's title).
Anyway, here is what they look like, and I strongly advise everyone to NOT buy from north-east-auction as the coins are horrible and I just did this to see one in hand.
It looks like an acid dip, but the coin weighs 3.14g so not sure exactly what they are doing to the coins. But would have been a very nice coin if not destroyed.
Here is the original listing I bought:https://www.ebay.com/itm/1934-Linco...avfExiA%253D
