Hi guys,

I am a beginner collector of Chinese silver dollar from Massachusetts. I recently bought these two silver dollars for approximately $120 each. Could anyone tell if they are authentic or not? If I send them to NGC for grading, what kind of score can I get for these two coins? Anyway, any suggestion or opinion would help. Many thanks!

Both look authentic to me. The first one, details are not very clear, and it is hard to say if it has been cleaned or not. I will tend to say it might be AU Details Cleaning. The second one I guess will be between AU50-55.

Pictures of both coins are not clear enough to see the details. However, the defects of dentals in 1920 YSK suggesting this coin may not be genuine.
