How would you like to play Guess the Grade on this one?!? Saw this and had to share, would you pay $425? I can't even see the S

    There are scams where I feel sorry for the victim; there's no crime in being not very bright, and nobody deserves to be scammed.

    Well, except that anyone who would pay more than $.01 for this thing really deserves what he/she gets.

    I'm becoming convinced that the absurd "deals" for coins on Etsy are all part of an academic study; nobody could really be paying real money for that garbage!

    If the penny is real, this would be one of ETSY's better deals.

    I don’t see an “S.” Maybe the corrosion ate it.

    Looks like environmental damage, and the mint mark is not visible in the picture - if it was ever there at all.... Cheers, RickO

    No, that what makes this coin so rare! Much like the 1922 no D Lincoln, this the rare 1931 no S Lincoln!!!!

    It's a pareidolia coin. See the S between and under the 9 and 3 and again an s under the 1. Probably why it is so valuable. Big S and a little s. :D
