And no chop marks with that much wear is suspect.
I’m sure a few experts will be along soon
The rim is really wide and unbroken from denticles in most areas.
If the denticles were so worn down there should be gaps and not just a wide rim .. I think .... but then I haven't seen so worn down trade dollars as I've always collected much higher grade ones. So YMMV.
What did ANACS declare ?
Always give the weight in grams and tenths as that is a good indicator.
This is not a rare date. Looks odd if it is silver. There are stores in your area that
can scan it for silver content (for free) and that will also give you an answer 99% of the time.
And it's worth every penn... cent you pay us.
ANACS is relatively inexpensive to teach me a lesson. You guys can make sure I won't forget you schooled me for free!
I am expecting to hear from them within a week. Please stay tuned..
You’re going to get a surprising lesson I think. Raw trade dollar are a scary thing. But this one is real. @ksparrow I’ll take another opinion too
The toning/patina ("skin") on it looks right, for one thing. I know that can be (and is) often faked, but it looks kosher to me in this case.
Both of those look fine to me on this coin. I would vote real as well.
Insiders opinion carries some weight, as does MaineBill's. Neither could verify for certain without having that coin in hand, but I would count both of their votes twice.
Throw my vote out it you like. What do I know? I'm the Hamlet Squire of Tomfoolery . . . .
