eBay watch

Recommended Posts

Hoping that no one notices is no longer possible. :( Too many knowledgeable collectors. Just put in your max and hope for the best. I actually had this coin type in the past, but this one is nicer. At the auction like Kunker it would probably fetch double.

Hope is what keeps us going! ;)

 

But seriously, that auction was exciting! It looked very promising until about 5 minutes before the end, and even in the last minute there was a glimmer of hope... until all the snipes came through. :swearing:

It's true that you can resell this coin for a significant profit, and it would make sense to bid higher if that's the goal. But if you're buying it for yourself then all the usual budgetary restraints make it difficult to go higher.

Hmmm..The only thing that I don't like is the way that "T" is placed.. All of the items visible on MDv have "T' and "M" "paralel.. here the letters are dancing :-)

I would say that it would have to be re-engraved out of a different coin (IMHO). Most likely an MM overstrike. Of course in 1788 M-M is not under the horse. So is the date altered? Or both T and M are new?

 

Also in 1788 the TM coins are mostly overdates 1788/7.

The 2nd 1 in 1810 is too thick, apparently some common date for the 1804EM eagle side has been altered into 1810. The KM mint mark letters are not of the normal style.

The same coin was posted on http://coins.lave.ru/forum/viewtopic.php?t=332045&sid=25b778e310518fc25a17c5ba0c99420c

 

Local experts agree that this use to be an early MM 2 kopeeks and has an altered date and mint mark.

I'm surprised that NGC couldn't see the tooling on the coin? I thought they are well equipped with optics. Or is this a fake slab? Is it possible to check the number against their database?
