I'm mainly into ancients, well, I used to be years ago. I just collect coins that I'm drawn to. I picked this up last week and it's my first one. There's just something about it though, it just looks too good. What do you all think?

The surfaces may look odd from a cleaning a long time ago, but otherwise it looks genuine. It's an O-116 die marriage.

I'll third the genuine and old cleaning, but market acceptable. Even with the old cleaning, good eye appeal.

Nice!

I would be surprise if most of these aren't cleaned once for a coin that almost 200 years old, light cleaning for these type is certainly market acceptable.
