    I thought CAC stickers COINS THAT ARE AT THE TOP PART OF A GRADE (I could be wrong). Nevertheless, IMO, your post makes no sense w/o telling us the grade of each coin. Agree? They could have stickered any of them!

    I guess coin 3. The back looks super pretty!

    I'll guess 2. But it would help to know the grade of each coin.

    This is a useless exercise without the TPG grades.
    Just my humble opinion.

    I will opt out of GUESSING.

    Sorry for being such a dummy but I personally vote NONE! If I have to guess, #3 Environmental damage and all.

    For some reason I agree with Tooky, should I work for CAC?

  • DIMEMANDIMEMAN Posts: 22,403 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I'll stick with number 2.

    If the OP is not lying all coins were straight graded........Right?

    Tough crowd today. I have no reason to lie about coins or their grade. Grades that are posted is what they are.

    Coin 3.

    Coin 1 - flat, no luster, soft strike.

    Is that a scratch below the motto on coin 2?

    Door number 2

    Actually that is a line where 2 colors of tone came together. Reverse is clean but the obverse has atleast 3 or 4 small dings.

    You got #2 from me @Fairlaneman and it is a great coin. Don't listen to the 'dipped without a complete rinse' nonsense. It deserves the CAC sticker it has.
