Age dating of a coin dating a chinese american man
Back in the April issue of World Coin News we examined a Chinese 1914 Yuan that collectors affectionately refer to as the "Fat Man" dollar.Two of these were sent to me that were struck with dies that are so weak in detail that the owner suspected them to be counterfeits.At first glance, both coins also appeared to be double-struck in the collar but unlike most in-collar double strikes, one of them has normal reeding while the other seems to have normal reeding in some areas and then tightly spaced "double reeding" in other places.
Before you even pick up your glass, you can save a lot of time and bother by just putting a magnet on the coin.
You know instantly if it's worth checking further to see if it's genuine.
