Really nice or Really fake? 3 Birds
« on: March 16, 2019, 12:05:22 PM »
Hi, I tried in the introduction section, but maybe I was in the wrong section. Can you guys check out this coin and let me know what you think? If it is fake I would like to take down the listing as I am not interested in selling a fake.

Thanks in advance for your help. -Eric

Well, noone is providing any opinions which means everyone must want it.  :biggrin:

Seriously though, is this one worth sending off?

My recommendation will be let PCGS to decide its authenticity. IMO, it is a highly questionable coin. The edge reedings look OK, but the wear pattern is very odd. The hidden mark is too obvious for this very weak struck coin.

Thank you for the opinion. I agree that everything looks good, except some of the wear/strike. I may break it out and measure/weigh it to see if that decides for me one way or the other. A close friend has an NGC subscription so if it measures correctly I will send it in. I have to say, it matches VERY well with the NGC directory of recently auctioned coins. Some of the tone flecks would be very difficult to reproduce.

I'm guessing if it was genuine it would come back as some type of AU.

Thanks again.

P.S. I'll be at the split rock wine festival this year if you want to crush some wines.
