Coin and Paper Money Collecting/Expert Profile


Ask A Question

Expertise

My specialty is world coins from the 18th to 20th centuries, primarily non-US foreign coins and related areas such as errors and exonumia (tokens, medals, etc.). I can answer questions relating to identification, grading, selling, preservation and evaluation of such items. In addition to catalog value, I can give you the practical market value and trends for specific types of coins. I will also take questions regarding counterfeits (both modern and antique) and on how to identify them. I am NOT knowledgeable in paper money/banknotes, ancient or "shipwreck" coins. Thank you.

Experience in the area

Collector of world coins since early childhood. Access to a variety of auction records and reference material. You can also find me on Facebook.

Education/Credentials

A.S. in Psychology (2006), B.A. in Forensic Psychology (2008), M.A. in Forensic Psychology (2011).

2016-09-02 1861 1/2 penny:

Hi,  The overdate on both the 1/2 penny and penny coins of this year is rather subtle, with traces of an 8 beneath the 6. What you describe on this coin doesn't sound like that. Also, due to the condition

2016-08-03 Coins:

Hi,  The set you have is from Taiwan. I would assume it is in the original hard plastic case. This set is worth in the $50-$60 range.   As for the one pictured, that appears to be a charm rather than a
