Spooned Coin

6 posts in this topic

Why does the OP think this coin has any added value; and how can a "grade" possibly be assigned?

[Asked because I'd like to understand the OP's thoughts on these subjects.]

it is only worth face value as it is damage. It happens quite often, and do not be surprised if members line up claiming it is a dryer coin. 

The post topic indicates "spooned coin".  From a cause and effect basis spooning a coin and a typical dryer coin are both similar in that they experience prolonged gentle pressure along the rim edge.  The result being a smaller diameter coin with a wider, fairly even, rim.

For the record, I'd expect a spooned coin to have a better condition on the obverse unless it started out with all the scratches already.
