I have a local dealer with a PCGS slabbed (MS66, Brown) 1902 Indian cent.
It is really beautiful, and I'd love to own it. I have slowly been
acquiring uncirculated Indians from 1889, but nothing like this before.
I have a couple questions:
Are two tiny carbon spots acceptable on an MS66 coin? They are visible
only under high magnification. The rest of the coin is spotless, with no
marks of any kind, and a good strike.
He wants $300 for this coin, and I have no experience with coins of this
high a grade. Is that WAY too high a price??
Any advice would be much appreciated.
