Straits Settlements New Additions


Recommended Posts

This is my latest piece, SS Kg Edward 1904 MS62.

 

The coin does not look very appealing - Luster dark. What is the thought from all of you collectors? :read: Should coins in these conditions be clean or left as you see it?

I prefer to leave the coin as is. Cleaning is so full of potential problems. Very nice coin. :bthumbsup::bthumbsup::bthumbsup:

Nice looking coin. Please let us know what the grading company rates it at?

The reign of King George V may have been short, so has been the released of coins during his era between 1910 - 1936, and the earliest being the 1/4, 1/2, 10 & 20 cents coins in 1916 only.

 

There are some scarce coins during this period, like the 1916 10c & 20c. The rare coins are 1920 5c silver & 50c silver with a dot below the bust, then super rare coins are both the 1925 & 1926 silver dollar and the re-strike proof.

 

Attached is my recent purchase, a raw 1920 50c silver with a cross below the bust which is of the common variety. In my opinion, it's a UNC copy (Hopefully at least MS64). My only concern are hairline scratches on the coin. At close observations it does not seems to have been cleaned or rubbed before. Will have NGC to decide.

50 cents Queen Victoria in high grades are rare and hard to come by, as the mintage are low and its circulations are wide. Highest mintage in the series is 160,000 and the lowest 32,042.

Buying raw coins over the internet is somewhat challenging. You rely on the pictures and comments posted to describe the coin. If you need further information, you write in requesting for more detailed description of the coin and thereafter anticipate for the best once you win or buy. Well even with all that, we will still land up disappointed. Some of the coins I purchased may be disappointing, however if they are still acceptable, I will keep them, if not I will return them for a refund.

Very nice

 

@thedeadpoint - I'm going to guess there were likely a few rolls that survived intact and got certified together.

 

UNC Straits pieces are usually pretty nice - I seldom see "baggy" UNCs.
