1850 Half Dollar
I bought this coin at a Stacks auction sometime in the late 80's. It was bright at first, and has toned somewhat over the years.
As you can see, the toning is limited to the periphery and to areas around the devices.
It was described as ex another auction from the late 70's.
What do you think of this coin? what are the chances that it will be graded 'straight' ?
The sale description did not mention a cleaning, and accordingly show no signs of cleaning or hairlines, other than the circulation or handling marks, as can be seen in the pictures.
Looking forward to your comments.
