  1. Welcome Rodney! I am fairly new to this community and have fallen in love with this site. As you probably have found out by now, there are oodles & oodles of info and experienced expertise here. John
  2. Greetings to you three!! Welcome aboard. I am quite new to this site. I am not an expert but I have studied DD's, owned, sold and looked at, who knows how many coins searching for DDs!!! Personally I believe that this not a double die but what are those odd things? You have nicely blown up pics, however, they are too out of focus or something and lacking the necessary clear detail to render a real accurate assessment. Hope you three enjoy this site as much as I do!!! Have a GREAT day! John
  3. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I agree with the Vfox in that this is MD but not for the same reasoning and yes, the thing by the ear merits further research. In reading and viewing pictures in the aforementioned Encyclopedia your coin lacks two complete designs of approximately of the same height. Are there little raised ridges along the edge between the higher design features and the lower or doubled design features? There appear to be some here and there. This is
  4. Agreeing with the Steven's statement in that this appears to be machine doubling, hub doubling or die chatter, all of which are called machine doubling. The 2nd or doubled partial design is flat and not of the same height as the other full image design. The bottom layer is most likely, as previously stated, surface metal movement. A true DD will have 2 complete sets of the same design and be approximately of the same height, whereas the MD will be flat as it appears in your pics. My humble opinion for your coin. The descriptions given above are for those who may not know the differences b

  9. Hi Bruce! You post some nice stuff, but you gotta join Flicker or Photobucket!! I belong to photobucket which is FREE and very easy to use!! It will allow coinpeople to actually see and appreciate your coins and make it MUCH easier to ID them for you.
  10. ________________________________________________________________________________ ___________________________ Thanks for looking! This one is an FS-103 type 3. If this does grade PR68 I will be thrilled to death as the highest PCGS graded one is a PR65 RD at $450.00!!
  11. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I am still working on the 1st coin, but the 2nd one is Japan, 4 MON, C# 4.2 dates from the mid 1700's to the mid 1800's, and in this condition is worth about $0.50. Mine is the C# 4.1 version of yours and is only worth about a buck.
  12. Hi! Have you tried the "Chinese Cash Price Guide" by David Jen? I have one of the 2nd coin displayed. I haven't ID'ed it yet, but have seen it in passing in one of my catalogs when I wasn't looking for it. I'll try and find it here one of these days soon. I do not have the above named price guide, just a few pages on which your coin does not appear. I believe it may be Chinese because I have seen unifaced Chinese coins in a catalog (Hummmm, which one?). In fact, have 4 in front of me from W. Han Dy. 206BC - 7AD worth about $20-$30 @. Your coin in question is a very interesting one.
  13. If you like collecting wood grained coins, let me know as I have some pennies that I can give you...............only thing is I have to find them first and that will take at least a month!!!
