    Depending on variety, condition & stuff could be $5,000 to $50,000 or more. That is provided it is real & not one of the many fakes.

    There are many many fakes of this, a lot of them were made during the time of the Bicentennial in the USA

    Depending upon when the fake was manufactured, it may even have the word copy on it. Sometimes the word is in the ring around the edge of the sundial. It can also be found in one of the rings that has the states names in them. Again, those would be made after it was required to put the word COPY on replicas. Prior to that, it was not required. see this link about the Hobby Protection Act, enacted Nov.29, 1973

    hey as u can tell im new here but i have a coin that looks like this but im unsure if its real or fake. On the coin i have i can't make out what it says on the 13 rings around the circle in the middle that says "American Congress" and "We are one". I have a slight feeling its a fake but i can't tell. I have no experience in these type coins so I must turn this over to you guys. Is there any sure fire way to determine if it is real or fake. Im a little unsure of its texture as it is incredibly smooth. And like I said earlier i can barely make out the writting on it.

    The real coin should be brown, not silver.

    I think you're confusing your coins - THESE were silver. THESE were copper.

    So does anyone have a sure fire answer for this coin or how i would get a real one just like this one. I really like old US coins and this is considered a very old US coin in my book.

    Sure, but I hope you've got deep pockets. Some of the varieties can sell for hundreds of thousands of dollars.

    Just contact these folks - American Numismatic Rarities - I'm quite sure they'll be able to help you out ;)

    The sure fire answer is that yours is not genuine. Doug's suggestion of ANR is a good one if you are looking for an authentic piece.
