Any opinions on this coin? It’s so shiny and clean that it seems fake. It weighs 12.49 grams. There’s a bit of what appears to be wear or surface damage at the “11:00 O’clock” position and also on the rim between the B and the E in Liberty.

BTW, this is my first time hunting rolls and I open a few rolls every day. So far in 12 rolls out of a $500 box from Loomis, I’ve found just this coin, about 40 Bicentennials, and a bunch of coins that look really nice - probably the so-called NIFCs I’ve learned about.

Doh! Edited to add pics

    It is authentic, though it is worn and cleaned. Nice find! :)

    Your coin has been polished, which destroys any numismatic value. It is valued only for the silver content.
