eBay item number:
I'm not really an expert, but looks right. Square rims, good strike. Not the best photos.
Looks OK to me.

Looks like a genuine but harshly cleaned proof to me.
Sure looks like a proof cent.... got some age spots, but in likely cleaned condition. Cheers, RickO
real, cleaned and hairlined
Certainly a proof, but whether a brilliant or satin I am not sure(probably brilliant). This coin has been listed for a while and definitely has some problems.
Collector, occasional seller
It's a proof that looks hairlined to death.
Shame it was cleaned.
It is real, a real dog.
Is there such a thing as a lowball set for proofs?
Custom album maker and numismatic photographer, see my portfolio here: (http://www.donahuenumismatics.com/).
I would pass on it.
It is always best to see the coin in hand.
Hit one of the major shows if you can or try BST here.
Kennedys are my quest...
I'm saying it's a real '36 satin. The '36 satin is notorious for die polish lines (look at the coinfacts images), but this one looks whizzed.
@alpha33 Wise move to post here for advise before purchase.
I think you can do better. That coin has too many defects that are negative to the grade. IMO. Peace Roy

On a coin like that, I always wonder why the coin is not in a reputable holder.
I'd pass for the reasons already listed above.
