1973 Cook Islsnd 5 Dollar421 viewsHere is an example of a Medium tarnished coin. there are scratches on the OBV that are beyond restoration without very serious damage to the coin, IOW, the scratches cannot be removed with normal procedures. Soldering? maybe... not me, not recommended, buy a new one :-) Look like this may be a Proof coin?
