    I believe that coin has had a wipe with a microfiber cloth or similar and then has retoned a bit. Proof like fields resulted but NOT a proof. The milling and edge IMHO not sharp enough. I would vote for "cleaned, Unc. details".

    Love that Milled British (1830-1960)
    Well, just Love coins, period.

    I was ignored. you should stop telling me what I should do. I asked for help. And each time you have seen no one answered. You stop being rude.

    Thank you for your honest opinion. I need help that is it. But I can see from my loupe, it has not been cleaned or polished outside of the mint. True mirror surfaces. Just bad images posted with low quality pixels. But thank you for being understanding. Every opinion counts.

    It’s spam. You also have been answered numerous times in the past, including by myself: these coins are not prooflike, they are not specimens, they are not proofs. You have posted a few of these, and they are almost certainly all counterfeits. If you want a professional opinion, send them to a grading service. Posting them here does nothing for you.

    Multiple experts here have suggested multiple times that the coin is not authentic. You chose to ignore them and continue to seek "opinions" and then refute those that are given. You even signed off and said goodbye since you were not getting any opinions you liked. Now you're back again with the same nonsense.

    You need to spend the money and get the coin authenticated. Sh.t or get off the pot.
