It's hard to say. Does anyone else think it's cleaned?

There were a number of Proofs made, and this definitely looks like it could be one. It would have to be certified to bring the $$$ that a Proof would command.

FWIW ... I cannot see anything that leads me to believe this is not a genuine strike USA coin ...

But I have serious doubts that it is a Proof strike coin.

To date .... PCGS and NCG have certified exactly two (2) Proof strike 1893 Colombian .... sooo ...

I suggest if you are convinced this is a genuine proof then submit it to PCGS for verification ...

You might have a very valuable winner here ... but odds are that it is a lovely MS coin.

No telling what an item like that would go for. With a population of two, it would certainly bring a nice amount at a respectable auction. As stated before, it would have to be certified.
