i was watching this auction today. Got a bit too high for me to try and buy it for resale. The obverse has some strange splotchy color variations. reverse looked nice except for one spot of verdigris. Sharpness of xf-45 I would say. E-bay bucks bring price down for you?
It sure did. I thought this was the nicest of the many coins this seller was liquidating. I also bid on the regular slanted 1855 which had nicer surfaces but a heavy rim ding. That one was just outside my reach. I bid 88 cents less than the winner so I could have git it if I had bid $1 more. This one.
