This one deserved its own thread in my opinion :)
Pics don't do it justice, but the circulated cameo look on this one is just amazing imo...

    Those first images make it appear as though the piece has a ton of PVC or glue residue on it, but the following images hide it quite well. Regardless, the surfaces underneath the material may not match the rest of the coin.

    I think the first pics are just a combination of poor lighting/angles, the subsequent pictures are more true to what the coin actually looks like, In hand I can clearly see some small marks/dings in the reverse fields that I don't think I would be able to see if it had some of residue/glue on it ?
    I have some coins that have had serious residue/buildup of different materials and this one doesn't show that to me, I guess it's another thing that images cannot convey and you have to see it in hand....
    Thanks for the feedback :)

    Great looking circulated coin. Jackson and Lee almost look like ghost riders. It must have been someone's pocket piece at one time. B)

    Worry is the interest you pay on a debt you may not owe.

    The first image certainly appears to show a green residue on the rider and horse's head. Cheers, RickO
