    Straits Settlements, Malaya & Malaysia - coins
  1. Straits Settlements New Additions

    Was expecting a MS61 or MS62
  2. Straits Settlements New Additions

    I am totally delighted. Coin is back after grading. Did not expect a MS64 Total numbers graded is 23 and only 2 at MS64.

    It's been awhile since I logged in. High grade coins are hard to come by and they are expensive. Manage to get hold of one for the moment though. Below is a raw Q Victoria 1871 5cts. Conditions - Lustred UNC with undercoat shine. (Could not capture the actual beauty of the coin) Mintage - 62,000 Waiting to have it slab.
  4. British Trade Dollars

    My latest. Year : 1911B Variety : "B" Bombay Mint Composition : Silver .900 fine Mintage : 37,470,509 pieces Graded : MS-63. Total graded by PCGS currently - 59
  5. Here's a fine example of a Raised B from eBay. Check out the 2 pointers. A beautiful coin. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Straits-Settlements-Edward-VII-Dollar-1903-Raised-B-ANACS-AU55-Rare-/252783495318?hash=item3adb120896:g:CnMAAOSwx6pYrnjh

    Coin is back and I am very pleased with the grade. It's a MS66 Straits Settlements King George V Denomination : 20cts Year : 1935 Composition : Silver .600 fine Diameter : 23 mm Weight : 5.422g Mintage : 1,000,00 (For both varieties) Grade : NGC MS66 (Population graded 9) Currently the highest grade

    The "H" does have the same link to the Canadian coinage. Coins between the years 1858 - 1907 were minted in England either by the Royal Mint of London or the Heaton Mint in Birmingham with the "H" letter mint-mark.

    Tried finding out the ratio, but could not. It would be great if it is avail.
  9. Straits Settlements New Additions

    Feeling happy with this new find for my collection, at a MS62 grade. High grades Kg Edward VII 50cts series are hard to come by. The 1907H "H" represents Heaton & Sons Mint, and the other without "H" is the Royal Mint. Straits Settlements Kg Edward VII Denomination : 50cts Year : 1907H Composition : Silver .900 fine Mintage : 2,666,667 (Mintage includes both "H" and non "H" mintage) Grade - MS62 (Population 1 pc. graded by PCGS / 4 pcs by NGC)

    1901B - Grade MS-64. A notch higher over the MS-63 I have. Never get tired collecting these series. Enjoy!
  11. Straits Settlements New Additions

    Hi everybody, Blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year! I have been quite lately, given no new materials to post. But I've been on a lookout though, and will post 2 similar year coins recently added. Yes, SS Kg Edward VII 1904 Silver Dollar. NGC Graded at MS62. Enjoy!
  12. Straits Settlements New Additions

    Sorry I do not know the term PMD & PMJ.
  13. The described coin is a fake. No such coin. Even the descriptions on the obverse is wrong. It should read "George V King Emperor" and not "George V King & Emperor of India"
  14. British Trade Dollars

    You may be right on that, but one other reason could be, collectors are more choosy, aiming for better / higher graded coins.
  15. British Trade Dollars

    A new piece to add the collection. It's getting tough and pricey finding these quality coins now. Enjoy!
