1913 buff type 1?

I won this coin on ebay.


Now this coin looks like the 3 1/2 leg variety. What do you all think?

    Pictures are quite blurry, but looks as if it may be..... Will not be able to determine conclusively until you can provide better pictures. Cheers, RickO

    Try some acetone on the coin when you receive it. That should get rid of the gold paint. Then take another look at the coin. One of the hind legs looks abraded away also.

    Don't think so.

    The area around the neck and date do not show PUP'S that I can see.

    The 1913 3.5 Leg obverse has to look like this:

    I don't think it is. Wrong obverse, like Pete says. It also looks like all four legs are present and accounted for.
