Hello everyone,

I am new to the community and I recently came across this questionable coin. I need help figuring out what it might be that it looks different and if it's worth submitting for grading.

Images need to have a bit more clarity to tell what you have. I couldn't even assume on these images. The areas that I need to see are most of the areas, that I can't tell for sure what is going on.

Looks like a late die state, but larger pics will help.

Definitely looks like the die is at its end.

If you are referring to that wavy effect at the top of the reverse, that is just due
to a worn die. There would be many more just like it out there.
Certainly not worth spending $50.00 or more having it graded.

If you can get better images it would help.

from what I can see this is a Very Late Die State strike. The wavy lines were caused by the die repeatedly striking thousands upon thousands of coins. The dies simply wear out. Even if the dies were retired just after this coin was struck, there may be tens of thousands of coins struck with this die pair that look just the same.

The coin also shows slight Die Misalignment of MAD. It's not enough to give the coin any premium value. A MAD coin becomes collectable when part of the design is missing, not just the rims.

VLDS=very late die state. aka a worn-out die. Not worth grading. Value is 5ó

Hey everyone,

Sorry for the late response. I tried to take better pictures but I honestly just suck at taking pictures or maybe it's just that the variance is so small that in order to capture the detail, it's making the picture super blurry.

It's basically the bumpy stuff on the reverse of the coin as well as the distorted/missing letters in Monticello.

I hope the picture below are a bit better for you guys. I'm sorry they're not the greatest pics.

yes, the orange peel look of very late stage dies, during that era the dies were worked to death

Gotcha! So, the consensus is that it's not worth getting it graded? Sorry everyone, I'm so new but I appreciate everyone's advice!

what you see is characteristic to acid interferences. Grading? money in the Blowing of the wind.
