    Feeling lucky?

    A worn 1911S RPM002 if you want to take a chance.

    Nice job spotting that RPM TPring! Maybe some Verdi-Care would help it out, but I think there's only 2 RPM's for 1911S so it'd be worth a shot!

    Not sure if Verdi-Care will take care of that area on the lower half of the reverse.

    yeah, what happened to the pic? I thought maybe my screen didn't finish loading, reloaded... still no lower half of the reverse. May be some really bad gunk there the Seller didn't want to show

    Looked good at first... The RPM appears to be there but with the lower half of the rev mysteriously missing I would need to see it first... Appears to be deliberate cover to maintain the BIN of $39.00... There is some serious pitting around the east stalk,,, There is also pitting on the obv... Looks like it may have been cleaned at one time... Lots of gunk in the recesses both obv and rev but the fields are fairly clean... The rev has red coloring in the not so accessible ares!!!


    Added - The pics are really nice so that makes me lean even more toward the deliberate covering of the rev!!!

    Even without seeing the lower rev, the corrosion spots are there to stay. You might get the green off but there is going to be some pits. It's priced over what I think it's worth even if it is the RPM.

    That pic is incredibly nice for such a poor coin. I wish more ebay pics were even half that nice.

    I did write him about that .jpg issue and he did not seem to know about it. Once I noticed the pitting I knew that any bid I offered would not even come close to the $39.

    Unless it was 39 cents

    About $14, it fills a sort of tough hole with or without the RPM

    If someone gets the spots off to expose some pits, drop that to
    $5 LOL.....
