1918 France 1 Franc Heavy513 viewsTHis is an example of a heavily tarnished coin before restoration. It is possible under the very thick tarnish near the edge of the coin at 7 o'clock there may have been damage. We will see.
Common Double Die.JPG
Common Double Die446 viewsThese are the most common double dies. They were really part of of the minting process as the dates were added to the Dies seperately so new dies would not have to be made each year... see the distance between the 7 and the 4, someone surely made this strike a special VM # or something.
1973 Cook Islsnd 5 Dollar550 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?
