Hi everyone. I have this Trade dollar from an old type set. It looked like a nice AU coin with some old cleaning. When I photographed it, I noticed that the eagle and some parts of seated liberty where outlined by scratch. Is this called tooling? How does it affect the value on this particular coin?
Thanks all. The lines are incuse. I'm in the process of parting out the type set. Any idea of what a fair price for this coin is with the tooling accounted for? It is hard to find a comparable example online.
