Hi everyone, I am looking to buy a bust half for my collection but am having trouble finding one that isn't too pricey and is eye appealing. I found this one for sale but am a little suspicious of it. Does it looked tampered with (cleaned, polished, etc.)?

Thanks!

Big personal pet peeve. People who use a too-small holder for a too-big coin!

Where is it for sale at? How Much? (I am not interested in buying it)

It is cleaned. The hairlines and haloing around devices is the evidence of it.

Agree it's been cleaned. I'd stay away.

Looks cleaned to me. Don't buy it if your suspicious. Better safe than sorry.
