Yeah up until this last auction I had done pretty well. I kid you not, every coin I bought at the estate sale, online, was marked 2-4 grades above what it actually was. Of course that totally destroys what I was valuing things at when bidding, but the saving grace is I was only bidding up to 40% of value so broke even.
Learning a lot :) Learning I can't trust what is marked on a coin and learning all the tricks some are doing to rip people off, whizzing coins or whatever else to make look shiny while ruining the coin.
Special thanks to all the input from everyone here. I'm learning a lot from you all.
Thank you for all the responses . I'm new to collecting so whizzing indicates? I actually received this coin in a bundle with different coins. Its does look cleaned to me as well. when I saw its condition I had thought I may have something. Thank you again .
