It's an out of focus photo of a 1942 Mercury dime with something maybe going
on in the date area.

It's an opportunity to gamble a lot of money on something that is probably
just an ordinary 1942 Mercury dime.

It's wishful thinking on the part of someone who doesn't know much about
coins.

It's an attempt by a dishonest seller to find a victim.

Take your pick.

The item description says it is a 1942/1. Does this mean that if it
turns out not to be one you get your money back?

The seller does not discuss returns in the auction description. Nor is it
customary for shipping charges (in this case $14) to be refunded. Other
"protections" are in place, but they are cumbersome to use and take a long
time for completion. As a buyer I like high probability that everything is
in order. My estimate of that probability he .000001 YMMV

Yeah right!
Keep wishing and dreaming and it just might become one--not bloody
likely!
$14 for shipping?? That's more than what that coin is worth!!

I put the photo of the coin into Photoshop CS2, enlarged and sharpened
the edges. It's a either a genuine piece but cleaned or a struck
counterfeit, of which hundreds were purported to have been made. If it
turns out to be genuine, its easily worth the $500 paid for it even if
cleaned. If counterfeit, well, that's another story entirely.

Which is it? Which is it? Only the high bidder will know, and maybe even
he won't know.

Dang it. I thought the auction was going to end next week, and I was
going to buy the coin and post the results. Oh well.
