    Grey mark on Proof Sovereign

    Hi, Bought a three coin 2000 proof sovereign set, and have noticed a grey mark to the double sovereign. Has anyone seen these kind of marks before? Any idea of how it can be removed? Look forward to your replies. CC.

    Fractionals and fakes

    Like Roy and Augur, I have had a few Sydney half sovs that look good but measure wider in diameter than they should. All other mesurements are spot on. I have recently picked up this 1883 Sydney Full that measures 22.20mm wide (0.15mm) larger than it should be. I will post a photo of this one. All other measurements and weight are spot on. The coin is confirmed to be 22ct on xrf. Does this coin look like a fake? Could it be that somehow some Sydney mint sovereigns and half’s were a fraction larger than they should be? Or are all of these oversized Sydney coins fakes. There does seem to be a lot of oversized diameter Sydney mints.

    Is this normal? Re: order with bullion company.

    The website is showing the coins as Available and they are actually out of stock is unacceptable.

    If you use a magnet slide on the 1920’s the sterling slide slower the the 50% coins.

    Dragon Dollar

    Good point, I think I will send it off for grading, at least that way I find out if it’s real.

    Dragon Dollar

    Thanks for your post, I have seen those replicas before but they are almost always under weight, come up light on the specific gravity, don’t ring, and the magnet slide just falls off real fast.

    Dragon Dollar

    Thanks for the link, I have sent the guy a message with some photos to see what he says about the coin. I’ll add his comments here when he replies.

    Dragon Dollar

    Thanks for your message BYB. The weight is spot on at 26.90 grams measures correct and SG was for 90% silver. I believe it is real but not an expert myself. Had read that the black marks could be some kind of ink, but not sure.

    Dragon Dollar

    Hi, I have a 1911 One Dollar Dragon with dot after the ‘R’ also has a chop mark. The coin is tarnished with a black/red colour. It’s has a nasty scratch to both sides and the reeded edge is heavily tarnished black. I have read that there are 31 variety’s of this year? Does anyone know what variety this one is? Any idea on value? All responses are greatly appreciated.

    1928 Wreath Crown

    Hi, I am looking for opinions to the grade and rough price of my 1928 Wreath Crown. I have tried to compare with sold listings on eBay and auction houses but I am not an expert. There is a scratch on the kings head and right of eyebrow But I am unsure how this would effect the price and grade? The coin is genuine and has been in the family for years. All opinions welcome.
