  1. 1855 $1 Gold – Numerous rim hits, nasty scratches, weak date, coin has been cleaned.

    1882 CC $1 – Coin has environmental damage (carbon spots all over), probably from being stored in a PVC flip for a long time.

    1885 S $1 – Coin surfaces look kind of grainy which would signify that the coin has been whizzed to enhance the details.

    1886 O $1 – Coin has been harshly cleaned and/or dipped. Light hairlines all over the obverse
