Dear Giantgg :001_rolleyes:

After close look to your YSK 1914 "O" variety. I think this is genuine piece. Please take a look on picture nr 9 at: http://china-mint.info/forum/index.php?topic=4460.0
Yeah, that's your coin. However there are some points which makes me little worry, 1st, 3rd and 6th chinese character (part of each those characters) are little bold. I didn't find the same looking coin, at least the similar bold one with those 3 chinese characters. 5th chinese character (the part of this character) has sharp hook. I didn't see this hook on any of my YSK 1914 with "O" and also on other fatman dollars 1914 with mint mark "O". When you take a close look on my coin on picture nr 9 you can see it is a little different. The most part on obverse which makes me worry, cause those all what I am talking here is on obverse of your coin. Downstairs rim a part of rim is double. I haven't seen such of YSK 1914 with "O" till now on. I saw similar double rim on common YSK 1914 but never on YSK 1914 "O" variety. I am not saying that this fake coin. I would say it is genuine but I would send it to NGC to grade it just to be 100% sure. Now let's take a look on your dragon dollar 1911, shall we... :001_rolleyes:

What about the grade! I understand you want to keep your NGC number secret, but you should share the grade :p
