Please note - I do not offer opinions on authenticity of coins based on photos. Also, I will not provide information about the possible value of your coin or collection. There are many resources available on the Internet for you to do the work and determine for yourself what you believe your coin to be worth. Start with eBay and see what other examples are going for in the marketplace.

Thanks and enjoy the site,
