Ludwig IV Hessen 10 mark 1878


Recommended Posts

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

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).

 

I have seen many coins that have been inside mounts and if they are damaged then they tend to have 3 or 4 areas where the lugs have been, and I don't think that this shows that type of damage. I have asked for photos of the area that he is concerned about which he has sent but they are of poor quality and I cannot judge anything.

 

However, what I am trying to discover, and I cannot seem to find any information out there, is what exactly should there be on the rims of these coins. What sort of Arabesque pattern is he talking about. Does anyone know? Can anyone point me in the right direction?

 

Many thanks

 

Mario
