Each of these coins has problems, resulting in our not placing a bid or placing a lowball bid. Some flaws are based on condition, altering, dipping, hairlines, rim dings or damage. Some coins have more than one flaw. If you can discern the flaw (or flaws) for each coin, post a comment. We’ll disclose flaws tomorrow.
