  3. I want someone here to confirm if the paper roll existed back in mid-late 1800's.. I read the post on Facebook, one guy said that the paper roll for Morgan Dollar didn't existed back in 1800's, and almost all of Morgans were in bags. It may makes a sense, but it's possible that the banks (back in 1880's) did used the paper roll for Morgans as well?

    1982 small date?

    No, it's large date.
  5. NGC MS64 It's hard to catch the right picture as what we see in hand, it looks more colorful in hand than my own pictures.
  6. I don't have any favorite gold coin because it usually out of my price range, but I would love to own any gold coins including the Double Eagles! I only have 2 Prussian gold coins (common one).
  7. I am not aware with any antique medals, so I am guessing it's Prussia, German States, or some from Austria? I know 2 medals are during WW2 (Nazi medals). Also all of medals are in old and kinda of rough condition. Can someone help me to identify all of this medals? Should I clean it or not worth it? I am thinking about to put it on the frame and put it on the wall. If one of you wants to look closer, let me know. I will do that and post it in here. Thank you!
  8. It looks like grease. I don't think it affected the grade. Similar grease on wing on my previous 1881-S MS66*. After looking at your coin, it looks like the grade is almost spot on.. perhaps MS62+ or *, my opinion.
  9. I immediately bought this from Northeast coin website when their description shows "2 feathers" which I thought it's unusual variety. When I dug it up on Google and it stated that it's a minor variety, is that right? Also it shows that 21 of 1929-S Buffalo nickel 2 feathers have been graded by PCGS and 2 by NGC. So I'm wondering if it's not important variety in Buffalo nickel series?

    How do you grade a Cent like this?

    That's unusual penny! I like it! I would guessed AU, but I'm surprised that it comes back as MS64. Congrats!

    Well, it would be better if you are being honest with buyer when you are going to sell it as a raw.

    1723 Hibernia 1/2 cent

    I got an email from James today, he said: Hi Alan, It looks like a contemporary forgery due to the evidence of wear. - I have not seen a Type I Woods Halfpenny dated 1723 - only 1722. - it is too early (and too good a copy) to be a evasion halfpenny Its not a particularly valuable or rare coin, so it is "unlikely" that it is a modern forgery designed to deceive collectors. However, if it "IS GENUINE" you've got a great find. - have you shown it to anyone at DNW ? - their email is auctions@dnw.co.uk This is a link to my article on the Woods' patent halfpennies and farthings, if that helps. https://oldcurrencyexchange.com/2015/03/05/william-woods-irish-coinage-1722-1724-for-george-i/ Best regards, James Perhaps you can try to contact with someone at DNW (Dix Noonan Webb)?

    1723 Hibernia 1/2 cent

    That's quite interesting coin. But the color on both sides are different which it lead me to suspecting of something. Also I did looked closer at that date "1723" and it doesn't looking right neither because 1) I usually see the thick "bubble" on the tail of "7" on many half pennies, but it doesn't show that much on this one. 2) The "2" looking like filled on its tail instead of separate line. I am not 100% sure, but I did copied your pictures and sent to one guy, who have more knowledge with Hibernia coins, on an email. I will let you know by then.
  20. Welcome to the NGC forum! That seller is not only one who done that. There are more than hundred thousands of ripped off seller on eBay. You should've looked at his feedback before make a purchase.

    Error List

    If you can add the picture, we can help to see if it's worth to get it graded.

    Need help with coin!

    I don't think there is special about that, not error nor variety.
  23. I only have a little knowledge with this Chinese coin after I researched on websites, and I couldn't figure what year was it. So I would like to know what year was it and what grade would you give it?
