    I already had a $5 and a $10 in my gold stack, so the next natural step was a $2.50. She's a little "too clean", but does not have any signs of polishing or abrasive cleaning, so my guess is at some point in the past it had a light chemical dip. However, for my ungraded pile of gold bullion and old gold, she'll do nicely.

    Next year I'll try to track a Double Eagle Liberty Head to wrap up the collection. I want to get a 1 oz Kangaroo before the end of the year, so that takes precedence before the Double Eagle.

    I tested it using my sigma machine. Shocking results.....:eek::jawdrop:

    I can't believe such a reputable coin shop here in the south Florida area would sell me this. It turned out the coin is.....

    Real, quite real indeed. Weight is good, diameter is good, sigma is good. :p

    Man, I love this new Sigma. In a year or two I think I'll spring for a Pro with all the package, but for now this machine will give me peace of mind. I buy from reputable sources, but it's still nice to verify.

    I'll have to do a writeup with this machine for those wondering how it works. All my gold passed with flying colors. However... WARNING ⚠️ : Beware of bad readings with very thin coins with large diameters, or even very small coins. The 100 Corona gave me a scare. Read as problematic. But I changed to the large wand and it then tested beautifully, good no matter where in the coin it was placed. So keep that in mind when testing unusually large and thin or very small coins, use the wands for those.

    *Also verify any such coins with a scale and calipers for extra security.

    Anyway, here's the American quarter eagle with the Sigma below:
