      How much is it worth , it's beautiful?

      " is a coin that was made from a certified silver bar (A340-85)" there for this coin is a copy worth only the metal value. If you can find some one who actually collects this type of thing (relic made) they may be willing to pay a premium. Good luck.

      ^ Art and artifacts are worth what people are willing to pay for them. Motto to live by in the art and museum industry, of which I am a part.
    5. apostata apostata, 7 months ago
      well its far more complicated , we have to assess if this a stray , a stray is in this situation is washed ashore
      only certified Mel Fisher coins have decent value, and he is dead i believe 20 years or so, and the museum don,t give a damn , so it is not decent value

      The highest classification is what they call a 3 point 1 certified

      so the best this could be is a stray ,and then an awful lot of value is out of it, there are lot of strays by the way

      if you see the qualification of a 3 point 1 they are in rather mediocre condition , but three point one !

      i think this highly unlikely that this valuable, let,s say it very eufemistisch
    6. apostata apostata, 7 months ago
      its almost impossible to be in this mint pristine condition this way
    7. apostata apostata, 7 months ago
      well i think there is a correlation between beauty , and authenticity, and the market is not always right
    8. NicoleJerelen NicoleJerelen, 7 months ago
      Why am I being crucified for having what is probably a replica?? Lol. Nobody here is trying to conflate collectible and sentimental value.
    9. NicoleJerelen NicoleJerelen, 7 months ago
      Also I have a Masters in the field and a second one in the works- I do not need an explication as to how to assess value lol.
    10. NicoleJerelen NicoleJerelen, 7 months ago
      Plus your explanation doesn’t at all change the fact that things are worth what people are willing to pay for them. That is a literal saying in the field in which I hold my degrees and work professionally.
    11. apostata apostata, 7 months ago
      no i dont want to crucify you

      your opinion is as follows, that was on board the Nuestra Señora De Atocha !!!!!
      there is nothing wrong with a replica
      and if you want to know , i got an PHD and that got nothing to do with skill , just not falling asleep in college and stamina
    12. apostata apostata, 7 months ago
      actually i am just a rooky in assessment , i was a powerseller in antiques and an actioneer for a long time at an rather respected auctionhouse, and i was a designer of a outdated spreadsheet on deviation in correction with significance of artifacts

    13. NicoleJerelen NicoleJerelen, 7 months ago
      That description is NOT my opinion. I merely transcribed the certificate that came with the coin, no more, no less. I don’t post opinions on here.

      Of course, college degrees are not a reflection of emotional intelligence, only academic intelligence. We’re speaking about the latter, not the former, hence why I delineated my qualifications.

      You have experience, and I’ve worked as a curator at a respected NYC museum as well as a cataloguer at a notable NYC auction house. We’re more alike than previously assumed.
    14. apostata apostata, 7 months ago
      where is the certificate,
    15. apostata apostata, 7 months ago
      and what do you think what is the value
    16. NicoleJerelen NicoleJerelen, 7 months ago
      The certificate is somewhere in my house LOL. Even if it’s authentic, which the certificate claims it to be, it still likely has little value due to lack of rarity.

    17. apostata apostata, 7 months ago
      you want the museum to arbitrate ? , we split the costs for the request , deal ?
    18. NicoleJerelen NicoleJerelen, 7 months ago
      Deal! Lol!
