Recommended Posts

One of the few pieces in my hands with better pieces yet to be photographed. They are in its original brilliant conditions as on the day it rolled out from the mint. Just awesome.

 

Straits Settlements King George V

Denomination : 1/2 cent
Year : 1932
Composition : Bronze
Mintage : 5,000,000
Graded : (My personal opinion) Between MS63RB - MS65RB, If to be slab

I still remember getting ten of these from a bag that came on the market about 10 years ago - haven't seen any since.

Another from my collection.

 

You will find this piece with multiple crack recorded on the coin. I can only guess the mold minting this coin must have gone through a lot of press.

Hi Chin,

 

Very nice coin. From the looks of it at a glance, it's an AU/UNC coin. The details are very sharp. Pity if it is harshly polished.

A very desirable copy which I gotten a while back via auctions. These coins are getting relatively hard to find in auctions now a days. Not many collectors are selling them off I guess.

Wow! This is a 1920 "Dot" it's a rare coin and probably in XF condition. Looks harshly cleaned with scratches, but none the less as said, a rare coin.

You should have the coin cleaned of the verdigris, preserved and slab by profession like NGC. Do have it done.

Great coin. Where did you get from?

Dear Sidney, I acquire this collection from a retired collector which was introduce to me by another collector friend But all this coins are either stain with verdigris or they are cleaned and polished. Someday when I have time I intend to bring all my coins to Mavin in Singapore for them to have a look and let them decide those that can be graded.

Dear Sidney, Which grading you use NGC or PCGS? Do you courier direct to USA or do you go thru Singapore/ Hong Kong? and how long for PCGS/ NGC to return the coin after grading? thanks
