  1. Thank you for your reply. I must admit, this process seems very complex, how is one to know what tier, and why does it matter?

  6. I have been a long collector of antique sterling silver, and I decided it was time to play with a new hobby. I thought researching the providence of some of the items I own, was difficult. It is simple compared to this hobby. I have been reading as much as I can and have found a few people who have helped explain, and also told me that a membership here is a must. So here I am. Now for my question. I recently was convinced that this was a good coin for me to add, it bit on the higher end for a start as it was explained, but he told me to look into the coin. Well frankly,
