      haven,t done research talking out of memory

      maybe very much later i do look it at but not likely
    2. dav2no1 dav2no1, 11 months ago
      Chinese coin, BUT there's a high probability that it's fake. A quick search shows almost all are counterfeits..
    3. apostata apostata, 11 months ago
      weigh the coin , and i mean meticulously !!!! ,i need someone to super magnify the Manchu

      this must be a no brainer , but i can,t hardly see, very maybe very much later but not likely

      Date VG F VF XF AU UNC
      ND (1904)

      Numista Rarity index: 70

      so what we got here we got an fv classification ( IMO) which is comparivtialy low

      combined with an rarity index among peers of the collectors population

      so at best the value is very low

      apostata, Eh, you win some, you lose some.
    8. apostata apostata, 11 months ago
      we get there , as an team effort , believe me it is all about logic thinking , it is all about narrowing down this got nothing to do skill,

      i have to be out ( medical problems)

      greetings Waki

      Waki - Hope you're feeling better soon. If you look at the link I provided, it does show that some of the coins have value. How accurate the prices are, is arguable..
    10. keramikos, 11 months ago
      Yes, take care of yourself, apostata.
