It definitely fooled me at first. I first thought it was a plugged hole, but something just didn't look right. "Whizzed" was the answer.

Great job silverdollar! What were the diagnostics that you looked for or what did you see that led you to whizzing?

It was actually just a guess. I thought at first that a plugged hole sounded best, but it didn't look like a plugged hole. I couldn't really find anything else that would result in a details grade, but I remembered that a coin can be whizzed and it can retone after that, which can be difficult to spot. So I guessed whizzed, and it turns out I was right!

This one, in my opinion, was a bit too hard to guess from computer images.

For my edification, can someone point out the characteristics of the whizzing on this coin?

I wouldn't mind knowing that myself!

I've looked at it under magnification and the only giveaway is the usual colors in the fields and some deep unusual hairlines on the obverse. This is housed in an old anacs holder so the whizzing took place many decades ago and appears to have toned over.

Yes. I did some research a few minutes ago and found the auction where it was sold.

JJuliano: From the PCGS website: Term used to describe the process of mechanically moving the metal of a lightly circulated coin to stimulate luster.Usually accomplished by using a wire brush attachment on a high speed drill.
This coin has not sold yet but will be hammered shortly by Heritage within the next 1 1/2 hours.
