I have a 1943 Mercury - bought this at auction - low price but marked ms 65. I was not able to see in person.

This one appears to me have been cleaned. I can see the parallel lines on on the surface. Would that indicate someone scrubbed it? ()

So I'm trying to figure out what exactly it is - because it is not ms 65. From my assessment mostly on the hair and its wear - I am guessing this is vf-20 details.

Someone marked it ms 65 - I just want to make sure I'm not missing something important. Appreciate your input.

I'd agree with the XF/AU range. I try to be very careful when doing the online auctions. I've walked with some awesome pickups, and also some stinkers. Live and learn!

Atog,

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.
