Important to Remember: The silver coins offered in Brilliantly Uncirculated (BU) condition can exhibit natural signs of wear such as marks, blemishes, and tarnish. This is particularly common for older silver coins that have been in contact with air containing sulfur gases. Traces of sulfur, which are naturally found in the air, lead to the discoloration and darkening of silver over time.
