THE REEDING IS EVEN AND SHARP. THESE FACTS COUPLED WITH THE STRIKE IN AREAS THAT ARE NORMALLY WEAK AND THE DOUBLED DATE AND "DOLLAR" LEAD ME TO BELIEVE THE COIN COULD HAVE BEEN A PROOF. I HAVE TRIED TO SHOW THE REFLECTIVE AREAS IN PHOTOS BUT IT IS HARD TO PHOTOGRAPH THIS SINCE YOU CAN'T SEE THE TRUE REFLECTIVENESS OF THE MIRRORED AREAS. THE CONS OF THE ARGUMENT IS THAT THE RIMS ARE NOT "SQUARED" ALL THE WAY AROUND.
THERE ARE AREAS OF "WIRE" BUT NOT ALL THE WAY AROUND. THIS COIN APPEARS TO HAVE COME OUT OF THE SEA? SO THERE IS RESULTING SOFTNESS IN AREAS THAT NORMALLY WOULD HAVE BEEN SHARPER, SUCH AS REEDING AND RIM, IN MY OPINION. I MAY BE A DREAMER BUT NOT A NOVICE! THERE ARE SOME SPOTS ON THE REEDING MAYBE FROM SEA WATER.SOME TONING OR LIGHT SURFACE CORROSION ON REVERSE. NO HEAVY MARKS OR WEAR. I WILL ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE TO THE BEST OF MY ABILITY. IF THE COIN IS A PROOF IT IS AN EXTREMELY RARE COIN. NOTE - I have many more photos of the coin should you need more looks. Just message me and I can send some of them.
