  1. Sorry for delay in advising status of this coin. DRW experts advised this is known modern counterfeit. Produced in the 1960's. Oh well... JFC
  2. wdrob. Sorry for forgetting to thank you for your interest & recognizing your photographic skills. Great photo. Regards,Jim...
  3. coinman1794. Please see my response to wdrob above. Thanks for your interest. Jim...
  4. wdrob. Sorry for missing your question. No it's raw as they say today. My photos were sent to dnw, who have asked to see the coin. Their thoughts, from the photos, was that is was probably not an evasion nor a modern forgery, but perhaps a contemporary production. I live on the west coast of FL, hurricane area, so have not posted the coin to them, as yet. I will soon and will post their comments here. Jim...
  5. Alan, Thanks for your help. I'll take James's advice and contact dnw for their input. Will also probably send to NGC or PCGS for slabbing. Quite a article he wrote on the Wood's tokens.. Very impressive. By the way I live right up the coast from you in Bradenton. Regards, Jim...
  6. Thanks A.Phillips for your input. The color on both sides of the actual coin is the same. I took the two separate photos at night, using the flash on my camera, then ran them through photoshop to 1. sharpen the focus, 2. let the program adjust the contrast, & 3. size the photo for intended use. As to the tail on the "7"and "2", they is what they is. I'll be interested in your friends comments. Thanks again. Jim...

  10. Don't know how to attach photos on this site. Be glad to if I can get some guidance. It's a standard Hibernia 1723 1/2 cent with the reverse of the 1722. Pictures of both are readily available on any of the Colonial Coin sites. Regards Jim...
