[solved] Spain 1957 *58* 5 Ptas Edge Lettering
Posted: 13-Jan-2020, 02:39PM in Coin identifications and valuations

Well, i am sorry i missread your info. • This coin has that lettrering both in the reverse (eagle side) and in the rim. The error i was talking about, is in the RIM: for the year 58, there are a unknow quantity of this coins that were made with the lettrering "UNA LIBRE GRANDE" instead of "UNA GRANDE LIBRE" in the rim. • Your coin has everything as it should be, so its not one of thoose error coins. • Sorry for my confusion

2 more tokens (I think) where help is needed
Posted: 10-Jan-2020, 04:05PM in Coin identifications and valuations

Tryed to ID them but I simply cant, did some search with advanced search and wasnt able to find exactly your examples or probably missed it • I leave you two links, the first one, all the results with the lettrering GOTTES which appears in both of your tokens, the second one with the lettrering HANNS which appears in the left one • I did find similar ones that didnt appear under GOTTES or even HANNS; because of the lack of info in their coin pages they are unlike to appear unless you do a full research under German Counter Tokens • Lets see if any other user can help you better than me.

[solved] 5 Reis D. José I from Portugal
Posted: 2-Jan-2020, 11:57PM in Coin identifications and valuations

Sorry Rui but that needs to be a reproduction as pointed by previous mates. • Here in Spain (I also saw them in Portugal), are somehow "comon" to see; My guess is that probably its from a "History coin collection" made by a news paper or similar like a magazine, probably in the last 30 or 40 years. • Its not exactly your case but... • If i dont recall wrong, the last year several news papers made one of this coin collections, even in colaboration with the Spanish mint Real Casa de la Moneda, making several historical spanish coins with finish in silver and gold... I have had several of this ones and also have had some catalonia reproductions as well with this kind of R(eproduction) on it. I sold all that stuff but i keep a Spanish II República 1 Peseta 1933 with that R which is cleary a reproduction (only matches desing, not meassurements or material).

You have up to 26 fields of information related to your coins that you can download with this export feature, that for some users can be quite handy. • Another one, you can turn your Excel into a Word or PDF, and so, print it.

Grade Euro Coin
Posted: 8-Nov-2019, 09:35PM in Coin identifications and valuations

Take my feedback knowing that I consider myself a rookie in grading. • First of all, nice photos, (REFLEX/DSLR + MACRO?); nice material to work with. • As far as i can see: • 1. Good Points: • - Lustre: if its not the lights effect, it seems full lustre or at least almost full. • - Wear: It do not seem to have wear at all (but...) • 2.Bad Point: • - Hits: (but...) It has some "notorious" hits in both sides. One in the 2 side, and a few of them in the shield (side). • Taking that into account plus the "rules" given in the Numista Guide, i would said a XF+ or just XF: you have some good details that could make it go up to AU but at the same time, some of the bad details, for me, stop your coin to go to that level... so XF seems optimum for me • Hope you can understand my point of view

Swaping Silver for Non silver
Posted: 30-Aug-2019, 12:52AM in Free discussion

At first, i wasnt sure about if it was a good idea, but now i begin to conclude that its not that bad to do a swap of siver for non silver, when the values or both swapers are okey with it. • But aslo, neilithicman got a really good point on the subject that i don't want to despise and i think it has its importance... but by the way, i dont think that yvon's example could fit in that vision.

[solved] link to the referee on the coin page

About your first point, I remember reading a similar suggestion somewhere and i remember a good argument to not implement something like this for a very good reason: • If you add a button that leads every user to the refree, their pm inbox will be bombed with ID questions and consequently the ID forum will be empity. The problem its not the ID forum empity, its that the refrees are not here 100% to answer all the ID questions that more or less all we do once in a while (or more often). • I think that if one user go to the Numista Team page and use the search tool form Chrome (other navigator should have one) can find easyly the refree that he wants. • --- • About your second point, i think it can be a good idea, for example, for thoose cases when you want to add a year line for No Date and its not possible becasue "The list of years is complete and has been verified" (your coin is worn, damaged, etc and you dont have the year...); it can be a fast [...]

So, the "thing" you have is 8 Reales from Spain colonies, much probably from Bolivia, because of desing. • The thing is that even is possible to match the coin to some links here, its not exactly the same, but i dont have enought knwoledge to say sharply its not a real coin or tell that its a fake... whatever... I leave you some links below to check it: Felipe IV, Felipe V, Fernando VI, Carlos III • As always, Weight, diameter... measurements always help to identify (for good or for bad). By the way, it should be silver, try to test if its. • Edit: I oriented a bit better your picks, cant do it 100% because if i do that, half coin will go out of frame •
