FOR SALE: AN 1888 LIBERTY HEAD NICKEL.
The images show the actual coin you will receive enlarged to about 5x magnification.
My scanner does not pick up luster, tends to wash out the fields and exaggerates flaws.
The actual coin has light gold toning and looks much nicer in hand than in the images.
The white highlighting on the edge of some devices is reflection from the scanner glass.
VF Details: My opinion based on ANA Grading Standards and my experience
but I am selling this coin as a F Net because the coin has been polished.
