    1921 Morgan

  4. I would suggest that you contact the National Bank of Nigeria. Also attach a photo of the set. I do know that some African countries do not have proof sets, only mint-sets. Very often the mint-sets are mistaken as proof sets.

    Chit-Chat - Gold Sovereign coins

    No not at all ... Omnicoin does not allow detailed photos. In my opinion the Sovereign might be authentic. The "22" counterstamp, to me, says the coin was "tested" by some jewelry at some stage. (22 carat) At least you know you have gold in hand ... 😊

    Chit-Chat - Gold Sovereign coins

    Forgot to mention the "22" poop by the horse ....
  9. Hi guys and girls Just an interesting article from NGC regarding fake 1928 SA sovereigns available at the following link ... https://www.ngccoin.com/news/article/5626/counterfeit-1928-south-africa-gold-soveriegn/ However, reading the article, NGC made a big "blooper" At the end they compared the 1914 SA sovereign with a 1928 SA sovereign. According to my knowledge no sovereigns were minted in SA during 1914. South Africa only minted sovereigns from 1923 to 1932. Even with the nice details on the 1914 sovereign i'm not able to clearly see the SA mint mark. Should it be "SA" then that coin, (in my opinion), should also be fake. @thedeadpoint I have noticed you own a 1927 SA sovereign. The coin should be listed under "South Africa" and not "UK" At the back of George's neck there is a mark. Is that a "counterstamp" or just some damage? By the way ... nice range of Peace Dollars you have there.
