    There’s no pitting on it as far as I can tell… it’s just spotted toning

    Again, photos are not definitive,, however I see evidence of slight surface porosity in all 3 photos. It appears acid washed to me.

    Throw it on eBay with a .99¢ starting bid and free shipping and let's see what it's value truly is.

    I may need to get a loupe… all I see is toning, but yeah, photos definitely don’t help at all

    Are you sure the date is actually 1913?

    Why did you make a duplicate thread about this coin?

    You got mad at everyone who tried to give you their opinion about this coin in your thread titled
    I’m pretty sure I just hit a deal of a lifetime…
    You called some members the D word who weren't agreeing with you about the value so you made this thread?

    Why?

    Seems like a young kid, just trying to find a way to make money. I did the same thing when I was younger, flipping coins purely for a profit. Now, I just buy coins I like because I love the hobby. If they turn out to be good investments, then that's a bonus.

    Actually looks like it might grade AG3 if it was submitted, which would be roughly a $125 coin. Raw, it might fetch $75 or so on ebay.

    I have a collection of heavily circulated Buffalo Nickels from when I was a kid. Some of them are really difficult to make out the dates. The 13-S (both T1 and T2) were tough.

    $50 or so.

    In 1913 it would buy a lot too. Including a local call from a pay phone.
    Operator, oh could you help me place this call, You see the number on the matchbook is old and faded......

    You might be onto something.

    That user got banned a couple months ago. 18 years old.

    This latest troll seems to know about getting banned despite no one really talking about it on his threads. Plus he changed the name of one of his threads ("Mods please close") to almost the same title as one that other poster had.
