Damaged rim

By  Lc

from Pittsburgh


I bought this little gold coin because I have purchased from Apmex before and was pleased with the products. However, when I received this coin I was quite disappointed. I guess this coin used to be jewelry because there was burn marks on the rim and on the obverse like there was a bezel there at one time. The ad said it was cleaned, not damaged. I'm keeping the coin since I need it for my collection. I was going to order a two and a half dollar gold coin but after this experience I will wait and purchase my numismatic coins in person and just use Apmex for bullion.
