Hello all,

I'm in the Uk and I am craving some new US coins for my collection. I am not well versed in gauging if coins have been cleaned.

Any help is beyond appreciated.

Hope these are legit#129310;#127997;

All the best my fellow coin fanatics

Perhaps cleaned in the past, but probably market acceptable for that issue.

Xavocado, The coin you showed doesn't look cleaned to me. Please correct your images, as both images show the same coin.

I am relatively sure it is market acceptable. The toning pattern shows signs of an old cleaning. Do you see how it is darker at the edge devices? When it was cleaned a long time ago those would have been the areas that the cleaning would not have gotten to as much.

Thank you all for your feedback. I posted the other images in another post.

It is a shame that just a clean can remove so much of the value. I would think that if the grade was in the lower end then a clean could be seen as a reasonable occurrence.

Think I may just have to look for slabbed coins until I am better versed.

Grateful for all the help as usual.

If the coin has a market acceptable old cleaning, it may not reduce value. Please, others let me know if this is true.

If there is a cleaning it is a very old one. It looks like an acceptable coin to me, just heavily worn.
