Ok, gents - I'm going to try one more time. I really like this coin. Dealer tells me that the white material on the coin is inside the flip and is not part of the coin. Seller's pics. Full refund policy. This looks like a nice coin to me. Now you get to tell me I'm full of it!

Much larger, brighter images needed. Can't tell much from these.

More light needed on the coin.
I want to see if there is retained luster. If not, it may be impaired.
Looks like XF-AU details so far.

Yeah, these are all I have from the dealer. I liked the detail and will take a chance on this one. Better pics when it arrives. If I don't like the looks of it, I'll return it.

poor lighting makes it difficult to determine surface originality. key in on those spots in front of the neck, between a couple of the feathers and that white spot. grade wise looks like its between XF40 and 45

Update time - I bought the coin. It arrived today. White bits were cardboard from the 2x2. I'm pretty pleased with the coin at the price. Comments and grading? There's a small hair at the top of the first feather that I didn't notice until I had gotten the shots in - not on the coin. Neat Longacre doubling.

Sometimes I think that bad seller pictures can work to your advantage as long as returns are allowed. Got another coin coming in today that had really green pictures. Almost no bids. Dealer told me he lost pretty bad on it.

I think that can work to the buyer's advantage. Can't understand people selling coins with terrible pictures - seems like a waste. I mean look at this guy's selling pics - just awful. You guys thought I was crazy to buy this based on his pics. I might have been, but I knew I could back out if I had to. Bad pictures limit bidding, IMHO, which might provide an opportunity. . Hate to send coins back, but I'm willing to.
