I'm surprised by the positive responses. In the after photos I see hairlines that run on the obverse from WNW to ESE on all the high spots and in the open, centers of fields. None of these hairlines are in the fields immediately next to Lincoln. Isn't that usually evidence of clearning? I've had coins rejected as "cleaned" for fewer hairlines than that.


That's just circulation wear, completely normal for a VG. If all those hairlines existed on an uncirculated coin; however, it would probably be from a cleaning.

Looks great! Finished product has much better eye appeal.
