Help to identify cuban coins

Recommended Posts

I have two coins unlisted in Krause. The essai coin I know is rare, the gold one, I know nothing about. Maybe is a fake coin/token

Do anybody knows something about these coins?

The second coin/token depicts José Marti, who was born in 1853. He is depicted on several Cuban coins, mostly in the 1950's and 1960's. But all those coins have a different reverse, see KM# 26, KM# 27, KM# 28, KM# 30, KM# 31. There is one coin that looks a lot like it, KM# 29, 1 Peso, 1953, but that is silver, not gold. Perhaps yours is guilded by someone?

The details on your 1p are very "soft" - what size it is? It seems like it might be one of those 9k/10k miniatures that are sometimes seen of various types.
