  1. Yesterday
  2. Ok the 1897 US Silver Morgan dollar in a old PCGS holder is graded MS63 Asking price: $69.99 or Best offer I take cash, checks and money orders FREE SHIPPING WITH TRACKING PM if Interested -------------------------- Pic taken with a webcam so they are not so good
  3. Wow! I wonder what the 1st and 2nd prizes looked like?
  4. Last week
  5. this last one is dated 1795 and weighs in at 47.7 grams.
  6. next is dated 1792 and weighs in at 52 grams
  7. this one is dated 1791 and weighs 50.5 grams
  8. The next is dated 1790 and weighs 49.9 grams
  9. Here's five different dated copper 5 kopek pieces from Anninsk mint The first is dated 1789 and weighs 48.9 grams.
  10. They do look odd in comparison to normal circulation strikes. Fortunatley, they didn't cost me that much in the first place (probably cost more to send them back) so worth the `punt' .....they will do until something `real' comes along . However, it's not often that you find die cracks on modern replica's though. The 2 kopeks has prominent examples on both obv and rev. Never seen this on large copper items before now
  11. Send the "novodel" back for your money. They look like modern replicas
  12. Here's a silver jeton dated 1689 which was minted for Chartres. Not the best of grades but still very collectable, and the first one i've actually seen for over 10 years. The jeton was also struck in copper...both the silver and copper pieces are rarely seen on the market.
  13. Here's an ordinary 5 Kopeks dated 1778 (reeded edge) which weighs in at 26 grams
  14. ...and here's a 5 kopek `novodel' (weighs in ar 21.6 grams). Plain edge
  15. OK here's the 2 kopek `novodel'
  16. Reviving an old thread. Found this tribute struck by a Japanese private mint Struck in 2000, mintage of just 1000. I guess this is the best I could get to the real thing. I still find it intriguing that the Bank of Korea suspects that it was struck in Russia. Who knows - history can be interesting
  17. Hi. Thanks for that. I won't be able to post pics until tomorrow at the earliest. The only date i was aware of for a Siberian 2 kopek novodel is 1764., but this one looks very real, and my knowledge of Russian coins (like my ability to speak Russian) is at best `sketchy' Will post pics of this one, a 5 kopek circulation coin, a 5 kopek novodel, a 10 kopec circulation coin and (possibly) a 10 kopek novodel in the next couple of days. I will also dig out some very high grade 5 kopek coins from Aninsk mint that I have in my collection and post here. cheers Ian
  18. Hello Ian These Siberian 2 kopeks exist as novodel as well. Weight looks to be correct. The inscription on the edge says: "coper Kolyvanskaya" meaning coins are made from copper mined from the Kolyvan mines (in Siberia). To be able to say more need to see the photos.
  19. When the obverse and reverse are `upside down' to each other it is referred to as `coin rotation'. Most coins in the world (I believe) are usually `coin rotation'. When the obverse and the reverse are the same way round then it is usually referred to as being `medal rotation'. I can't remember if my example of this piece is coin or medal rotation. I'd have to dig it out to advise, but i suspect it would be `coin rotation' and as such there would be nothing unusual about your one. Indeed unless the obverse and the reverse were at very unusual rotations to each other there would be li
  20. Hi, Just purchased a few siberian copper coins some of which have just arrived, but more to follow. Will post images when they are all in my possession. One of them is a 2 kopek coin dated 1767 in relatively high grade..so good that i'm a wee bit suspicious.I have no knowledge of `novodels' and there doesn't appear to be any for this date. However I'm pretty sure its from the right period concerned....but then again, who knows? I don't think circulation coins had edge lettering....The edge on this one is however lettered (large) and there's some cross `+' shapes between the word
  21. Thanks very much , thanks helpful
  22. Looks like it's from Nepal just from the fonts.
  23. I, too, know nothing about the box. But what I know for sure: the banknote is fake! 5 Million CGU in 1930! The highest note idated 1930 was 500 GCU!. Erwin

  25. The picture you give is not very clear, but I can say the following: This is clearly Chinese. Not Japanese. 奏辦湖廣公債票 (in modern characters it would be written as 奏办湖广票) 湖 = hú refers to 湖南 (Húnán Province) 廣 =guǎng refers to 廣東 (Guǎngdōng Province) 公债 = public debt, 公債票 = bond. = Húnán - Bond, or Bond issued by the provinces of Húnán and Guǎngdōng. The amount is 100 Liang (in English usually called “Tael”), It is expressively said that the silver standard to which the 100 Liang refer is the so-called Kùpíng silver standard. The bon
