    Ok, Last Coin - 1922 D

    That is until I return from my trip in mid June.

    So this is my very first coin I ever bought on Ebay. Needless to say these 1922 D cents can be a tough cent to grade. Its a beautiful coin in hand - luster all over. So what does everyone think this grade is ???. Again thanks for your input. I will post some more pics in July.

    Nice one for a first purchase.
    Woodies make it difficult sometimes but I'm thinking AU 53.

    It has very little wear but has some scuffs and handling and the rev is better than the obv

    Maybe AU-50 but it's a wildcard, a woody, a 22-D (known for being horrible when struck).

    That would explain why I have only seen those numbers
