I have what is either an very rare 1853-O , no arrows, half dollar or a more common 1858-O.  The date has been damaged and it is very difficult to tell just what is is.  I have pictures but when I tried to post them here, it said they were too big.  can someone explain how I can post them ?

I have found that others believe ( I am not qualified to judge) that it is NOT an 1853-O, no arrows or rays but likely an 1858 whose date was (intentionally?) damaged to make it appear to be the rare 1853-O.
