Recently received an online auction purchase of a 1840 Seated Liberty dollar -- and once again was deceived by auction photos (UGH)

Was supposed to be AU, but this clearly looks XF to my novice eye... which is basically what I paid for it (get what you pay for) -- but still disappointing.I really wanted an AU :-/

Rather than sending off to NGC for grading... I was hoping I might get some consensus opinions from more skilled eyes. If others agree, I'm going to post on another forum at XF to unload.

Definitely not AU, and the rim issues further detract for me.

Thanks CoinFrog!

Just for my own learning -- can you please elaborate on the rim issues?

I would give it 35-40 if straight graded. Like most SLDs out there, it looks cleaned. Wouldn't hazard a guess whether TPG would detail for cleaning or rim dings. I think you have a good idea of what to do with this one.

That reverse rim whack by the D in UNITED, and the big adjacent scratch, seals its XF Details doom. Still a pretty nice coin for a belt buckle.
