Saw another draped bust large cent dateless for cheap on the bay again and decided to bid and try my magic on it. It didn't come out as nice as the other one but its variety and date were identified. The tops of 1797 were visible and it has stems on the reverse. No pic of the reverse as its barely visible except when moved in light. It cannot be cleaned off without harming it more. Since the date and variety was revealed its good enough for me. BTW it was cleaned with the boiling hydrogen peroxide method.

Here's a picture to highlight exactly what I see. The line is right above the top of the very faint line on the top of 7 in 17.
The circle highlights the inner corner of the last digit in 1797. Its a headache kind a coin I spent ages looking at it.

This is the best I can get of the date with contrast, sharpness and brightness edited with a photo editor.

I too can't make anything out of it, just seeing corrosion and hits.

Can we get a shot of the reverse? May eliminate a couple dates at least.

I'm not seeing any numbers either. It's possible that you can see it better in hand by moving it in the light, and it just won't show up in a 2-dimensional photo.

if it makes you happy, good on you.. But you can never sell it as a 1797.. No one would ever be able to confirm it..

From what I see it appears to be a type II hair. If so it can't be a 97.
