    I agreed with coinman1794.

    Well, it would be better if you are being honest with buyer when you are going to sell it as a raw.
  3. 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)?
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Error List

    If you can add the picture, we can help to see if it's worth to get it graded.
  7. Need help with coin!

    I don't think there is special about that, not error nor variety.
  8. 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?
  9. Post Your Most Recent Acquisition

    Perhaps he is trying to post here to tell us that he is selling the fake coins on ebay. It's quite interesting to see that Russian (ebay seller) is telling the truth that the coins are fake.
  10. is CAC overrated?

    I think that's the Mercury dime that I mentioned earlier. https://coins.ha.com/itm/mercury-dimes/dimes/1943-s-10c-ms67-full-bands-pcgs-cac/a/1208-3527.s?ic4=ListView-ShortDescription-071515

  12. is CAC overrated?

    Sometimes CAC get a grade spot on and sometimes not. For example, someone did posted here on this forum a year or 2 ago about the toned Mercury dime that got NGC MS65FB without CAC sticker. Then after someone resubmitted that exactly same toned Mercury dime to NGC and come back as MS66+FB and later got green bean sticker. Somehow, someone got it cracked out and submitted to PCGS and come back as MS67+FB!!! and got green bean sticker again! How is that possible that CAC give a green sticker on that the exactly same toned Mercury dime when they already gave it (MS66+FB) a green sticker (not gold sticker) in the past? So does that mean CAC couldn't tell the difference between MS66+ and MS67+? I did see some people said from ATS, "No bean, no buy," I think it's ridiculousness statement. My opinion is that I think CAC is pointless, just want to make the money from submitters... business is business.
  13. Joe

    Welcome to the forum! The picture of your coin will help.
  14. From your pictures, I didn't see any doubled die obverse on your pennies.
  15. Fantastic story and pictures! You make me want to go there next year if I can, and congratulations on the award!
  16. 1910 on a flying eagle cent???

    I really wish you did researched on pennies on google before you ask us those non-sense questions on 1910 flying eagle, small date 1982, and 1983 on your other posts. I can help you with some of those coins, none of those are worth more than 1 cent. Your "1982" and 1983-D pennies are completely damaged which you should put it back in your pocket, throw it away, or donate it to Goodwill. The 1910 "flying eagle" is not flying eagle, it's Lincoln wheat penny. At that condition, it's not worth much, no more than 5 cents. The VDB is only appeared on 1909 Lincoln wheat penny. Next time, when you find something that catch your eyes, please researching it on google.com before you ask us on this forum. Have fun!
  17. I don't think it is a genuine coin because the reverse is Bahama's 2 Dollar.. and Obverse is Victoria from United Kingdom. And also the rim on obverse doesn't look right either.

  21. Hetty Green newspaper clippings on will

    Well, interesting and harsh life too. Because Hetty seems to be a neglect mother to her 2 children: Edward and Sylvia. It's from the website, "No one suffered the harshness of her behavior as much as her two children, Ned and Sylvia. They lived in squalor, missed the social opportunities their station in life should have provided, and were mentally damaged by their overbearing mother. After Ned suffered a leg injury as a child Hetty failed to seek proper treatment. When the leg became worse, she sought treatment in New York's public (free) clinics. Eventually, Ned lost the leg and was fitted with a cork leg. Sylvia was ill-treated and a social outcast in New York and Massachusetts." Even though she was a multimillionaire at that time.. crazy, eh?

    Bump; price reduced (8/3)
  23. I noticed that more and more sellers start to use the black light on toning coins often now on eBay? My opinion, I don't like the idea of using the black light on toning coin to pull in more bidders/buyers. I think the shade of colours will show different between black light and natural light; such as, natural light will show that the toning is darker than it shows with black light, I think.
