I'll work on the picts, I'm working with a iphone and a makeshift light box (2 liter bottle wrapped in tissue paper)..I'm finding that coins with a lot of luster or mirroring are difficult to capture what is in hand vs what is captured in a pict.
the cleaning/polishing is very noticeable across the reverse. hairline scratches all over the devices. take a close look a the scratches across "E PLURIBUS UNUM". since this is a common coin imo it would not have any collector value over melt. AU details
