Just got here (1/6)



  1. The pictures on the face of the coin is clear and none of the details seem to have worn off, there are no major marks on either side or the rim, but when you look closely you can see the surface is covered in those tiny scruffy marks. I'm sure it's a collectible grade, that's all I can say really, as in you can see what's on the coin, and it's a bit grey but still silvery and shiny and not completely oxidized or anything. I've tried comparing pictures of other graded liberty dollars but I don't get it, some of them that are graded very highly look really worn out to me : / Thanks for you help!
  2. Hello, I just joined this forum because I need help. I bought an 1842 Seated Liberty dollar from ebay because it was being sold for $30. I don't know anything about coins, I bought it because it's worth more than that and because it's from 1842. But it arrived encased in sticky tape (as in, a wide piece of clear sticky tape was folded over it, completely covering the coin). That sucks! I took off the tape, it came off pretty easily, but quite a bit of the glue is still clearly stuck to the coin. I'm just wondering what to do as, reading about all the things that damage silver coins, I am sure this glue is very very bad. Is there anything in particular I should do about this? Is it possible to get the glue off without damaging the coin? Everyone seems to say not to clean old coins but I assume this glue will do more damage if it's left there? I plan to take it to a coin shop in the next few days, is there anything they can do, and more importantly, is there anything I should do in the mean time? I would really appreciate your help, thank you
