lightly Scratch a corner on your acid stone and test using 18 k acid.
What color does the silver rub turn on the stone?

Thanks guys. I may try the gravity test first, then do an acid scratch. Does the ice test work on 40%?

And if it shows as silver it tells you nothing because all this destructive test does is test the surface so it can be fooled by plating.

NO! Don't do the acid test! You will ruin the coin.

Yea, acid would be my last resort. I think NGC will be the way to go.
