1887 O VAM 30A/ PCGS AU Details

Post by jrfaust » Wed Jun 21, 2023 1:58 pm

Just got my 1887 O V30A back from PCGS, unfortunately it's AU Details cleaned :( I know this is subjective, but, how much does this degrade the value? What would the value be for this coin? (ball park :popcorn: )
I really can't find any evidence of a cleaning, but I'm not the expert. I usually can spot hairlines and possible dipping but not on this coin.
What say you?

Amazingly fun coin to own. Rather unique because it is only 1 of 2 known 'TY' clashed coins (the other being the 86-O 19A if you didn't know already) so I'd suspect it'd carry some premium even if it is in a detailed holder/body bag -- however, it doesn't seem particularly rare. SSDC has a census of over 50+ of them with many graded 61/62/63 and even a handful of 64s...

My guess? Not much of a premium based on this... unfortunately.
