At 74K for a MS-62 it would HAVE to be a 1795. You couldn't begin to touch a MS-62 1794 for that price.
David Lawrence seems to have a nice selection of Bust Dollars:
That sounds like you're calling him a noob. :mouth: I know what you mean though. All is well.
No. Maybe go for the poor man's version and purchase a nice Draped Bust large cent.
Might be a little tough. This VF30 was about $2.5k.
I think my 1796 Proof is a fake too. Fortunately it only cost me 10 bucks
I keep a couple of these mixed in with the real McCoys. So if they're ever lifted I get a small revenge
Your 1796 proof "half dollar" looks like it might be a Gallery Mint Museum reproduction,
as does the 1799 "cent" beside it
Forgot that was a half dollar (they were bigger then)!
I don't even belong in this thread
Hmm.. now I'll look at some more fakes, thanks for the links
ETA: Wow, they have (had?) some scary stuff. Anyway definitely not the source of my half, just look at the denticles for instance. I wish I knew of a place to get good fakes (stamped COPY of course)--even if it's sacrilegious around here I find them interesting (though I only have two). I'd pay up for one of these, if it were convincing. Sorry to veer so far OT, I'll say no more
Or, maybe I should buy the real thing. I mean, just look at the price!
"A Slab cannot reflect a coins true beauty, unless it's an NGC Slab"....j/k
Both are gorgeous Tom.
To the OP, both of these are now running a minimum $12k. These are super examples.
