be careful guys....this coin could very well be prooflike....the pics aren't the greatest....that's why I like to use a scanner for dollars...PL coins in the 1880's from new orleans and san fran. are somewhat common where as PL coins from philly are seen as somewhat scarce

 

with PL coins there is a test...

 

set the coin vertical and place a ruler against the coin...if you can see reflectionsof the inch marks it's at least semi prooflike

 

1"-2" Semi Prooflike

 

2"-4" is Prooflike

 

and 4" or more is Deep Mirror Prooflike or DMPL

 

check it out

Question about the test. Do I take the coin out of the holder? I did the test with the coin in the holder and can see the tick marks on the ruler to 2.

 

Then how do I determine the value. Red Book lists AU 50 as $20. I would assume that PL or semi PL would increase the value. Correct?

:ninja: I can just see someone doing that at a show.

 

"One moment, let me get my ruler out". Good idea though. I can see how that would work.
