Just got this from my father's old collection....I think he bought it for $0.75 about 40 years ago.

Not sure if it has been re-plated or not. Is is bright but doesn't look like a silly mirror finish I have seen on others. There is a defect of some sort above the date I was hoping might be some indicator for those of you more experienced than myself.

Many thanks in advance for any advice.

Doesn't look replated but by looking at the edge it should tell you.
If the edge shows a steel core between two layers of zinc, it is genuine.
If it has been replated, the edge will look all the same

It's not replated but looks like it was cleaned long ago . That's just a stain above date , and a few issues on reverse . Unfortunetly it is still only worth 75 if it attributes details due to cleaning .

In Memory of Butch L.
and Jim U. rest in peace .

Looks original, stain detracts.

AU-58 with original skin. Reprocessed pieces usually look brighter almost like chrome.
