First Piece of Gold...Disappointed

By  Kyle

from Richmond VA


First Piece of Gold...Disappointed Ordered this small piece of Gold (Hey a guy has to start somewhere) along with 4 pieces of silver. The silver was as described as BU. The 1986 1/10 has a large brown spot on the front which is pretty big for the size coin this is. I will be calling APMEX to do a exchange. This will be the second coin I will have to return in 2 months due to condition.
