I am not saying it is fake. I have no idea, and I assume it is real.
So this is one that I would agree needs to be slabbed, in order to guarantee authenticity.
And that was a major reason my friend wanted me to post it here. He knows it has been counterfeited, and was wondering if anyone here could tell him that. It's another coin I'll be taking to a dealer for verification. I think that's cheaper right now than sending it off to get graded and have it come back fake.
Well, I couldn't get any better pic of the reverse, and looking at it in hand it even looks blurry. At least the obverse is pretty sharp.
The flip sure doesn't help in getting sharp images. try removing it and stabilizing your camera.
It's not in a flip, it's in a 2x2. As I said, it even looks blurry in hand.
2*2 (flips) are cheap, the photos don't have any definition to them. Just trying to help
I know you are. But I'm confused. I thought 2x2s were the cardboard things, and flips the plastic holders with the two pockets and a good in the middle so you flip them.
Anyway, I'm not doing anything different in taking these pics than I have with all the others I've posted. It's just the coin.
So you're saying the obverse doesn't look blurry? I don't think it does, either, but there's no difference between the two sides in how I took the picture.
Another hint might lie in what was paid for this coin! If purchased @ a discount, that would raise a flag!
That said, I do sense some haze....better scans are required to confirm or deny suspicions though.
How so? Everything always sells for fair market value?
It's unlikely they are going to know what was paid or how it was acquired.
I thought this was a gold coin....so...…..
Where was that stated? All I read was that it was possessed by a friend.
