  1. It’s similar to this one on eBay. 0.01mm accuracy. Item number: 273657785346
  2. Hi Eric, thanks for your reply. I used calipers that have an accuracy of 0.01mm I have measured all the sovereigns I have had and this is the only full which comes out larger. A couple of half Sydney’s are also a fraction larger diameter then they should be. I might get it graded to find out. Any idea on a rough grade it could achieve if was found to to be real?
  3. Unfortunately I have not found out any more info to why a lot of Sydney’s seem to measure wider. The good news is that they are still 22ct as had them put on xrf. Around 50% of Sydney mints are wider from what I have seen.

    Victorian Silver tankards: A silver dealer would offer you £80. An auction estimate would be £100 - £150.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. The website is showing the coins as Available and they are actually out of stock is unacceptable.
  8. If you use a magnet slide on the 1920’s the sterling slide slower the the 50% coins.
  9. Good point, I think I will send it off for grading, at least that way I find out if it’s real.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
