I have bought many coins on ebay and this by far is the worst yet. The coin received was not really identifiable by date or mint mark whereas the picture represented was very clear.

The photo is too small,unless magnified better,as a seller I would not expect a great response. The true value or quality of cannot be seen,so the bids may never reach the maximum bid level. People like to see what their buying,especially in coins. The bigger in coin photos is better

Acid treated coins are not for me!

 | No, I would not recommend this product.

Bought this 1915 S Buffalo to place in my collection. The one I bought was acid treated to bring up the date. I was disappointed because the date is difficult to see (not like the photo shown on the offer). I will have to replace it. I learned a lesson-I will not buy any more acid treated coins. In the future I will look for untreated coins.
