  1. Hi, A while back I posted an 1878 Hessen 10 gold Mark coin on the Grading Challenge forum and received some very helpful advice. As my interest is mainly in early Liberty Head Dollars and the like I decided to sell it on, via e-bay. I accepted a best offer for it which meant I just about broke even, which I wasn't worried about. The buyer has now stated that the coin was not as described and is saying that there is no Arabesque pattern on the rim, and that the rim is nicked (damaged) stating that it has probably been mechanically treated to fit a medallion with a chain (which I do not und
  2. Hi, I'm experiencing some problems with this coin. As my main interest is early Liberty Head gold dollars and the like I decided to sell this one on via e-bay and took a Best Offer that meant I just about broke even, which I wasn't worried about. The buyer has now stated that the coin was not as described and is saying that there is no Arabesque pattern on the rim, and that the rim is nicked (damaged) stating that it has probably been mechanically treated to fit a medallion with a chain (which I do not understand).

  4. Hi, I've just acquired a little box with what appears to be an 1822 Crown embedded in the lid. What I would like to know, if anyone can help me with the coin still in place, is whether the feeling is that it is either genuine or a fake. It is not magnetic and it is the correct size. If the feeling is that it is genuine then is it worth trying to remove it? It has probably been cleaned regularly and the condition is probably only Fine. If the advice is to remove it, then would cutting it out and soaking it in acetone do the trick do you think? Many thanks
  5. Thanks for your opinion ccg, I tend to get very uncertain when it's between top VF and EF especially if, like you, I'm unfamiliar with the coins.
  6. Hi, Someone may recognise it, but could you post clearer pictures?
  7. Many thanks, and I apologise, I just realised that I said 'obverse', but meant 'reverse'
  8. Here is the obverse and as you can see there is quite a bit of wear to the grown etc
  9. Hi, This is my first post on this forum and am hoping someone can help me with grading this coin. I've a number of Peace and Morgan Dollars and seem to have an idea about those, but when it comes to a small gold coin such as this one I really do not know at all. Many thanks on advance Mario
