Yet another of the "just across the bridge" fakes who seem to be using the proximity of the mint to cover their chickenshittery.

This will be the very rare obverse F with the lcw below shield and pointed top lighthouse then........

I am watching it just to see if anybody falls for it. Apart from all the ‘wrong uns’ EBay is rather quiet at the moment.

Well if the bids start racking up, then we'll know several have fallen for it.

He should make absolutely sure before stating what he thinks it is, or else say he is not certain. I will allow him a little leeway in the honesty stakes, as I know the 1861 die combinations are not the easiest to get the measure of.

Generous of you Mike, but I'd say he knows exactly what he's doing.

I know this shouldn’t come as any surprise, but there are 317 Elizabeth I coins on eBay at the moment, and I wouldn’t care to own any of them.

Mine's 28.4g. I can't tell what's off with the ebay one either. I guess people are bidding to resell as genuine. :angry:

Do these hammered coins look like they were minted yesterday? The seller has quite a few for sale.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/HAMMERED-SILVER-MEDIEVAL-COIN/372630617715?redirect=mobile

Looks ok (albeit cleaned) to me. Polish poltorak (3 polker). Cheap as chips and plenty around.

This coin is almost certainly genuine. I have a few of this issue and they pretty much always look like this, although you occasionally see them with a nice gold tone. Eastern Polish/Belorussian soil is very acidic, so uncleaned examples from soil often have ugly patina which is better lost IMO. As per mrbadexample they were minted in the millions and can be bought wholesale for a few quid each.

Yes - same applies to the Hungarian Denars of the same era - I found 7 in a job lot of foreign coins bought cheaply recently. No reason to doubt their authenticity and sadly worth only a few quid each.

Yes, they do look rather cheap and nasty, not something I would purchase either. Seems to be an upsurge in the sale of them. There must be a market for them but they look too new for my liking. 👍
