my coin



Level 5

From the comments it looks and sounds to good to be true. What did your final conclusion come to?


Level 6

I hope this turned out well for you. Seems most people think it's counterfeit..


Level 7

Hope you bought it as a copy I really do forgot to add that.

I had a good idea it was fake. Like I said the net will not tell you or show you everything. If you looked in the red book you would see the rim on the obverse nd reverse. This rim is so from apart than the pictures in a book you would of seen it to. Besides it looks bleached. That's why you have to use the tools we have. I just wrote a blog on it this week or last. I feel bad for you I hate these guys. They make me sick. If it's to good to be true its to good. I'm sorry for you but you did have some options. Like go back to the seller.

This is a relatively bad counterfeit and probably not even real silver - does it stick to a magnet? Even the Alibaba Express versions that sell for about $2 each are better than this fake! Some people like to have these replicas in their collection as a filler until they can find (or afford) a real one - but nothing beats the real thing, baby!! And to The Coin Student: Look up the Hobby Protection Act passed by Richard Nixon in 1973 - just because the law says a replica coin has to have the word "COPY" incused doesn't mean that every counterfeit coin will have this, as there have been numerous fakes made before that date, and even the ones made after 1973 weren't all made by law abiding citizens. -Sam Gelberd, ANA Numismatic Educator.

same question as the rest and the date on the coin just doesn't look right to me


Level 6

Nice to have in your collection.


Level 4

Very Interesting Coin Indeed - It will be cool to see the final information on this item !


Level 7

I also would like to know how you acquired this coin not slabed. And he didn't say it was a copy. Although the inside rims are much further apart on this coin than the ones in a Book. You need to take it to a dealer or send it in. T he net won't tell you wants going on. Only a trained dealer or third party grader.

Where did you get the coin? Not slabbed?

Interesting coin. I looked up the link that Coin Apprentice shared and it doesn't have the word "copy" on that coin. I've heard that copies are required to have some other word or words on them to let people know they're not real. I'll be interested in hearing what others think about that.

Where did you get your Draped Bust? I did some research on the Draped Bust silver dollar online after seeing your post. The 1795 Draped Bust silver dollar is a very valuable coin. I found a copy that's selling for $8 and doesn't even have the word copy on it that I could see on it. Here's the link: https://www.wish.com/c/56952fb64cc6fc464a3db72f?hide_login_modal=true&from_ad=pla4&_display_country_code=US&gclid=CPaph8vpstMCFUY8gQodIrwCdw
