My boss didnt want to pay the price for his bank box so he decided to get rid of his coins which has been left to him by his grands. He had alot of coins, I sent him to a buyer cause his Morgans rated g3 and below. He also had 28 indian head pennies. I bought them from him for a dollar apiece, most in g3 or better. I was looking in my 2009 Red Book and came across a picture of a 1888 over 7. I got my loop and it looks exactly like the picture in the Red Book. I would like to know for sure but I don't know where to ask for help in identifing this as an 8 over 7 or not. Can someone give me some information as to how I can go about verifing this coin? Can I send it somewhere to authenticate it as an 8 over 7? What does it usually cost to send it somewhere, to a professional? I would like information on how to find out for sure. Thanks you to all who answer.
