    I do not have any with luster, but that is certainly a nice one.....I have one that is close, but the reverse has been altered... >:) ... Not by me though. Cheers, RickO

    Pic doesn't capture, but I sure wish I had kept this raw one. :'(

    Actually, I think it was more gloss than "lustre."
    Anyhow.....shudda, wudda, cudda.

    Nice coin @KollectorKing.

    Now, let me stir the pot. I learned that "luster" is the reflection of light from a surface. Therefore, each of the three coins above has luster. The first two are tipped so that it really shows. As all of us know, there is a different type of luster seen on an original Mint State copper surface.

    We should see some in this thread if the coins are in the correct orientation to show it. :smiley:

    Cleaned coins have luster. Whizzed coins have luster. Polished coins REALLY have luster!

    Is there a full moon tonight??? Am I posting gibberish??

    @Raybo I agreed with your original post! I agree that dipped coins have luster too. I'm making sure everyone knows that "luster" is the reflection of light from a surface. My plastic computer keyboard has luster also.
