Hi All,

I'm just wondering if I could get some opinions on this 1874 CC Trade Dollar. Unfortunately these are the only pictures I have access to, so I'm not expecting anything super definitive but more of an overall vibe. I'm wary of the denticles above Liberty's head, but have seen authentic examples with denticle variation before. The details seem pretty strong to me, and the seller has a strong reputation. Overall I feel OK but would love to hear what the experts think!

Thanks in advance!

Hi All,

I recently acquired a rather large estate collection of ancient coins, mostly Roman. I'm getting started on the silver coins and have identified most of them, but these are the outliers. The gentleman cleaned his own ancients with chemicals, so some of them have a bit of a scratchy look, however I would believe it if some of them turned out to be contemporary counterfeits or more modern forgeries.

I would love any assistance with identification and/or valuation. Thanks!

Two Chinese Sycee Silver Ingots- How To Authenticate?

Hi All,

I recently came across these two Chinese silver ingots (sycee) and was wondering if anybody out there could help me authenticate them or point me in the right direction? I've come across a few in the past several years but these are far better made and marked than any I've come across so far and they test for silver. Weight for one is 31.25 grams and the other is 30.14 grams so there is some discrepancy there although the markings are different for each. Were these sycee consistently a standard weight?

Any help appreciated, thanks in advance!

Not my coin but will recommend authentication. It does look good to my eyes, the discolouration is due moreso to the images.

None of the image hosts I can find appear to be "approved" by this site and (though my images are each under 300kb) they won't upload directly to the site either... *facepalm*

Hello all!

I am seeking more information on this 19th Century Irish Token issued by the Shrigley Mills. The only info I can find is below:

http://www.irish-tokens.co.uk/misc%...htm#shrigley

However, there is no history provided on these tokens. I recently found this token in a bag of coins and would like to know more about it.





Thanks!

Thanks for your input guys, I appreciate it. I'll take my own images when it arrives for comparison. I agree there is a small risk involved but if anything smells fishy it's a matter of a simple charge reversal on my card. Fingers crossed!

Hi all,

Just wondering how you guys feel about this 1862 Mohur. It looks alright to me although I am certainly not an expert. Would you feel AU-50 would be a reasonable grade to expect?





Thanks in advance!

Hi All,

I'm looking at purchasing this 1901 Straits Settlements 50 cent coin. I asked the seller to weigh it, and it comes in at 12.8 grams. The coin should weigh in at 13.5 grams, so I'm a bit skeptical.

Is it right for one of these to be so underweight? It looks alright from the pics but I don't want to get burned as I'm not an expert with these pieces!

Opinions appreciated Thanks!

Hi All,

Recently I picked up this 1724 2 Reales from a trusted source. It looks right to me, but weighs in at only 5.63g, so about a gram underweight

Is it possible for these to be this underweight, or am I looking at a fake?





Thanks!

Andrew

Fair, perhaps I'm the one who is lacking knowledge here. I do know, however, that these guys are hard to find :)

Hey all! I just picked up this French Colonial Sol (1693-1705) and I have a few questions about it.

PGCS had graded it "damaged" but to my eye it looks like the damage comes from a fleur de lis counterstamp. I have seen this counterstamp on other coins of this issue, so is it possible that PCGS is just unaware that the counterstamp is typical of these coins and not "damage", per se?

Also, it looks to me like a fairly clear dated 1699 (Obverse, top left corner) with a "B" mint mark on the center of the reverse (Rouen mint).

What do you guys think? Has PCGS made a goof?

If so, would it be worth cracking out for re-submission to NGC (my preferred world coin TPG)? Obviously having the coin graded is a personal choice (and personally, I do prefer graded coins as I often sell/trade and in my personal opinion it makes them more liquid), I'm just wondering if they might be able to identify it better and get rid of that ugly word "details".

As always, your opinions appreciated, thanks!
