$199. What looks like a mark at 11:30 in the obverse rim is actually a small piece of cardboard debris from the flip. Couple of rim dings at 9-10 o'clock in the obverse rim. Seller said it was VG with no rim nicks. White nick in liberty's thigh appears to be in the plastic flip window. Coin is dark and it is hard to see the surfaces clearly but has a return privilege, so no biggie. Thoughts? Thanks!

not sure if it was cleaned. if so it was a while back and may be acceptable. the thing that is bothering me is the color. if the color is true (greenish hue) could be from improper storage and may details the coin if it cannot be removed successfully. I think it makes F12 with a possible details designation

This came in. I was concerned given the pictures but I guess I didn't need to be. Looks original and problem free to me. Thoughts? Thanks!

definitely looks better in these shots. I think she was cleaned. for a coin in this grade or circulation the lettering and star crevices are too clean. you also have star hallowing. she may grade straight as it looks like a coin that would have been cleaned decades back

VG details (cleaned). Judging from the picture comparisons, the cleaning has taken place SINCE the original photo. Note all the dark areas around IGWT and below the left (facing) wing are now removed.

F-15 with an older cleaning. It will most likely straight grade now. Decent price.

Those original pictures were terrible based on the ones you took.

I think it was lightly cleaned in the past as a lot of these have been but looks to be around F-15 to me. For $199, it's a nice looking coin for what can be a very expensive proposition as you move up in grades.

F detailed reverse cleaned

Obverse may be market acceptable by today's standards, but the reverse would detail the coin imo

Appears to have had an old cleaning, but it most likely will straight grade at F12 or F15. The coin is worthy of sending in for grading. I like the coin. Nice pick up.

F-12 very likely to come back with a straight grade, although cleaned a very long time ago
