Big fingerprint

By  Corey

from Ohio



  • Poor Condition

When I received this coin there was a big milky fingerprint on the obverse of the coin. I did not feel this fit the BU description.

Dual finish

By  Hal

from Pensacola, FL



  • Attractive Design


  • Dual Finish
  • Common (higher mintage)

Bought the coin for a collection. Beautiful coin, but when I received it, it had a dual finish. Again, not what I expected for a BU coin. The coin was over priced for the quality. I was willing to pay the high cost to have the coin for my album, but disappointed when I received the coin.
