    Thought this was an 1803 large cent, but now I'm not so sure!

    I've had this 1803 LC for awhile and I always thought it was an 1803. But the other day I cleaned it with warm hydrogen peroxide and now I'm not so sure. Depending on the lighting, it looks to be either an 1803, 1804 or an 1805. It could even be one that had a date stamped over it. Let me know what you think!

    Yes, in the last photo it definitely looks to be a 5. But I see a 3 or a 4 when I look at the first two photos! More opinions needed! Majority rules on this one!

    At first glance the first two pics looked like 1803 and the last definitely 1805.

    Why does the 3rd coin flip have bolder underlines, and the left staple is canted more than 1st 2 pics?

    I tilted the coin flip back in that photo to get a different angle.

    Most are seeing a 5, so maybe I should call it an 1805. But just to confuse you more, here's a photo I took the day I found the LC. Kind of looks like a 3 in this photo, but maybe a dirty 5! So annoying!
