I like this coin but not sure about the lines. It came straight out of a sealed bank bag.

They appear to be die polishing lines. What do you mean by "sealed bank bag"?

Clearly Canyon City Coins based on the background. This seller has been discussed here numerous times in the past and most come to the conclusion that their coins do not actually come from original bags or rolls and their images are doctored.

And what great evidence for their images being doctored! Look at the DO in DOLLAR. Looks like photoshop clone stamp tool.

Yes those are die polishing lines. I've seen them a lot on early S Morgan dollars

The clone stamp tool is a feature on most photo editing software that allows you to sample parts of an image to paste elsewhere (clone and stamp). It's usually used to remove blemishes or parts of an image in a way that looks natural.

Clearly if this photo was altered by the clone stamp tool like it appears, the effect through DOL was not intentional. Too noticeable and seeming randomly done to be intentionally obscuring something. And I personally could not find any other areas in the image definitively altered in this way. But this shows that they do import the images into a photo editing software. Did they load the photo into this software to edit this coin's appearance? Did they adjust its color and contrast as well?

Here's the closeup:


Found the listing too: https://www.ebay.com/itm/164929258754

Also here's someone else's experience with this seller: http://goccf.com/t/396359
Seller's pics and buyer's pics show that contact marks were removed from that image.

Yes, would appear the photo processing workflow got a little sloppy. Love that 'photoshop' artifact on DOL.

This guy recently sold some Indian cents "from an original roll" and had a picture of some nice looking red IHCs coming out of an old paper roll. What a lie, he bought them all from Rick Snow the same week. All of them were PCGS questionable color when he bought them and he claimed he cracked the roll himself. No respect for this guy here.

with all of the above. Pretty sure this is the 2nd or 3rd time this month this seller has come up. It's a shame sellers like this exist.

Pretty sure it was on here that someone had an issue with this seller (canyon city coins) , clearly they had edited some blemishes from the coin and when confronted, the seller denied denied denied. They know exactly what they are doing, and considering the outrageous prices they're coins are bringing, they're probably not going to be stopping anytime soon.
