    Why is that particular coin a shame any more than millions of others?

    Ouch. That proof has some of the worst spots I've ever seen.

    I can't think of anything that would improve the coin!

    With a mintage of 21,100, it is a shame this one deteriorated the way it has.
    You don't agree?

    Sorry - and I hope I don’t sound like a meanie or calloused - but to me, there are countless other coins which have issues that are just as much as or more of a shame. Think of all of the gorgeous coins, many of which might otherwise grade 65 or higher, were it not for spotting, a wipe, a bad stain or a single bad scratch, etc. Some of those other coins are more common than this one, but many others are much rarer and (dare I say?) more important.

    It's tragic but it's old copper, and stuff happens.

    The unfortunate fact is that there is a certain attrition rate.

    I suppose if I heard of a drowning puppy I never knew or saw, I wouldn't have a vested interest ("such a shame"), yet if I see a photo of the drowned puppy, I would declare it as such.

    I think they use basting stiches when sewing. I think bastich must be that.

    He didn’t say it was the biggest shame in the history of coins. This can still be a shame even though there are equally or more shameful examples.

    It is a mess, and I do not think it can be restored. The underlying marks will remain. Cheers, RickO
