Hi all!

If this is actually an OMM, thinking that this is somewhere between Stage D and Stage F. There is a gouge north of the N and a faint scratch running northwest of the T on the reverse as indicated on VarietyVista.

Does this appear to be the real McCoy?

Thanks!

Looks like the coin some where in the past had been treated with olive oil. (thus the shiny finish. that was the thing to add to your copper cents in the 1950's and 1960's.) I now use mineral oil if I need to remove gunk from around the devices. But I seldom do this.

Coop, that was going to be one of my next posts! I have many with that glossy oily surface, and didn't know the substance or time of application. Awesome!

Thanks everyone for your input and encouragement! It really enhances the experience of coin hunting.

Don't do this for nice coins. Just the ones that you need to see something that is covered. I may do this to coins once time per year. BU coins and Proof coins will not respond to this treatment. I will make them worse. Always experiment on just circulation coins before attempting to do this. If it is a variety coin, I would think twice about bathing them. Why? Because in the grit there is sometimes sand present. This will scratch a coin if pushed aside incorrectly. So do this very, very, very sparingly. If you remove the mint surface off a variety coin, the value can drop as much as 90%. Best to leave them the way there are than to ruining them doing the wrong thing. What maybe done as acceptable today can in the future be looked back and they will be saying: "Why did they do that?" So only on an absolute need, or if you think you got the procedure down correctlym would you ever want to try this.
