Authentic or to good to be true?
« on: May 24, 2020, 08:29:19 PM »
Hi all, I have had this coin in my possession for about 20 years and finally decided to actually see what its all about. I mainly collect US coins but ended up with this from my mother. She can’t remember where she got it from, but thinks it may be from one of her old employers.

After much much research, I think I have a

1911 Reversed Dragon Hsüan-T’ung Silver Specimen Pattern Dollar Year 3.
If this is the real deal, I may just have an extremely rare coin. 

So, in your honest opinion, is it to good to be true or could this be the real deal?

Thanks!

Not really even close.

Can you tell me what the give aways are?

Just curious and want to know for future reference if I were to come across another one of these.
