I couldn't say much about this coin's authenticity, but the discrepancy in the stats would not concern me. They seem to be pretty close to the Numista stats.

Hi that coin screams fake, but the first step to proving that would be to weigh it on a gram scale. It should weigh 16.7 grams. I am pretty sure that will settle it.

1902 S Barber Half Dollar, Thinking Of Sending This One Off For Grading

Simple answer. Don't.
Complicated answer. There are a several reasons why people grade coins. Almost all of those reasons only apply to coins that have a value which can be increased by the grading. This increased value is what justifies the cost of grading. Maybe new collectors don't realize just how expensive it is to get a coin graded. Especially true if you are sending in only a single coin. (The cost of shipping both ways and the submission fee adding to the cost of the grading)

Seems to be a Dinar, similar, but not quite a match to this.

I think it is time to reveal.
This coin was graded MS66 by PCGS and received a CAC sticker as well.

I won this coin in an auction. I did not receive it yet, the photo is PCGS's.
Please let me know what you think it is graded
The 1899 is a sleeper IMO it has the 7th lowest mintage of all Morgan dollars with only 330,000 minted. I think I got it for a very good price.

Interesting for sure, but I hardly think that 51K pounds is "Life Changing" money (as the link claims).

Hi and
That is not a proof dime. It is an environmentally damaged dime.

1909 Cent and 2009 cent
The former created to commemorate 100 anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's birth and the latter was made with different reverses for the 200 year commemoration.

I believe it is a mint error because another penny fits in the mark almost perfectly.

That is your best indicator of the contrary. It is PMD or post mint damage caused by another coin (and likely a vise)
