    Have never purchased from MA-shops before; was referred to them by another thread.

    Here's the coin in question:


    It's not an expensive coin, so at this price, it's probably genuine, but thought I'd ask here anyway. Is it legit?


    The seller's Paypal email address ends with "@bluewin.ch", which is a domain registered in Switzerland (which I suppose makes perfect sense).

    I use MA-shops regularly and have never had an issue. The thing to keep in mind is that it is similar to Vcoins. It is just a network of dealers. It seems like they are all larger established dealers (IMO).

    Your coin looks ok to me. I am sure there are exceptions but generally forgeries (at least modern forgeries - there can be contemporary forgeries) are not common among European minors of this period. It would not be very profitable.

    That looks like a typical contemporary counterfeit from that time period and region. Cast and silver washed. You can see some remaining white/silver color in the fields, particularly in the first photo. Very cool and much more interesting than a genuine coin :)
