    Agreed, look like it spent time in the ground. While you will see coins like this offered by shyster sellers on many platforms like etsy or facebook, and even ebay with ridiculous asking prices, the reality is that coins with environmental damage are seldom worth much if anything over face value.

    That is confusing. You seem to imply that some coins with environmental damage are worth more. I don't think that's what you mean to say.

    NO coin is ever worth more because of environmental damage. Coins with more than have value without the damage could be reduced to face value because of the damage.

    @Cruzsr85... As stated above... Environmental damage.... No numismatic value other than face value. Cheers, RickO

    I did not say, and have never said, that a coin would be worth more as a collectable because of environmental damage, not even sure how you got that from what I wrote. I merely pointed out that it is commonplace on some websites for some sellers to ask ridiculous prices for damaged coins, including environmentally damaged coins.

    However, as you have so vehemently stated in past threads, any copper cent, even those with environmental damage, is currently worth up to 4 cents (to you anyway). So it is possible for a coin, be it collectable or pocket change, with environmental damage to have a value over face value, unless you are now backpedaling on your prior comments.
