Someone sent me this photo, I know they're not the best. I'm fairly certain it's a "no" but wanted to check anyway. Thanks for your input!

    it is the angled lines in the tail feathers

    I do not see it in your pic, but it could be lighting and focus

    @pcgs69.... I enlarged your picture and it seems the angled lines in the center tail feathers are not there... Cheers, RickO

    The very simple way to tell is that the tail feathers have extra details at an angle, you can't miss it!

    particularly the center tail feathers.

    So many of these non-Cheerios are being offered on eBay to not make it worth it anymore to notify.

    They should do a bulk submission and sell them on the U.S. Mint website...
