Thanks so much for your interesting study on the varieties of the 1914 fatman.  One thing that I have noticed on the "o" mint mark types that you do not note is the generals collar.  On the ones I have seen, and the one I have (I believe I have the "third type" you mention) the front of the generals collar has a beaded or uneven appearance, rather than a strait look of other types. Please see the attached pics (I think they will attach) of the one I have.  I wonder if you could comment on this.  Thanks

Hello all, I have a 1914 YSK, 1920 YSK, 1927 Memento and 1914 half dollar. Are they worth PCGS slot?

I have done some researches and I think the 1914 half dollar and the 1914 YSK dollar are worth PCGS?

I used a 10x loupe to look for scratches, dents, errors and etc

1. 1914 HALF Dollar: it should be AU55? Very few scratches or dents. Its in pretty good shape OBVERSE, it has couple PVC spots on REVERSE

2. 1920 YSK looks like a facsimile, its weights at 23grams.

3. 1914 YSK looks like a common date YUAN NC. It have lots of scratches and dents. Im actually not sure if its worth it to PCGS it. I think it'd be a F to XF only. :(

4. 1927 Memento looks like a common date. Has lots of scratches and dents. The only nuance is the OBVERSE side vines seem to be DD like :http://www.pcgs.com.cn/ValueView?cid=4207&specno=509213


Any and all help are greatly appreciated, I will be update as well.

What about this one? Weak strike? Fake? Notice no stars on the patch.

This is a highly questionable Fatman silver dollar. Usually, when a coin has a highly polished rough surface, the chance of being a genuine is less than 1%.

It is your coin. Most contemporary counterfeit has a correct weight and magnet test is only valid for coin containing iron.
