Hi guys and girls
Just an interesting article from NGC regarding fake 1928 SA sovereigns available at the following link ...
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.
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.
