    1868 indian princess $1 gold dollar/Real or counterfeit?

    Neither of my coin dealers can tell me. The coin almost looks too perfect to be real. It was a gift to me about 35 years ago. One dealer said, "watch this, it is probably under weight and the wrong weight" but it weighed in right. I have no idea how to get it appraised and I sure don't want to make a mistake just in case it is the real McCoy. The economy has me wanting to sell it. I could use the money. Where to go from here. The top of the head dress is not as detailed as some pictures I've seen and please forgive these photos. They make the coin look dull and mushy but it is not. Thanks. Bill

    I'd send it into a TPG like PCGS or NGC and see what they say! That is the best way.

    I think you can get the answer at PCGS or NGC website where you will get still more coins or US Mint site..

    Do you think sending these coins would get positive answer it may happen that "bh94901" may get into trouble coz PCGS n NGC will take many questions from where you have got the coin etc etc....

    No they will just send it back with 'questionable authenticity'.

    So now I am ready to finally do what I originally started to do here and that is to get this coin evaluated. Having not been to the site in a while I just read of some concerns on Authenticity. Not really sure what that means. The story behind where the coin came from is that I got it as a birthday gift from a woman I no longer would even know how to find. I did not know that would even be an issue.
    In my original explanation I said I received it maybe 35 years ago but I know for sure it was 27 or 28 years ago. Now what? Thanks in advance for anybody that can give me some guidance. I came back to the site to find the names of the coin evaluators. I still want to know about the coin and probably sell it.
    So....TPG, PCGS or NGC?

    PCGS The Standard for the Rare Coin Industry

    Call them up and I am sure someone can explain what you need to do.

    Or you might take it to a coin dealer in your area to have him or her give you an opinion.

    Something looks really off about that coin, though. I am not sure you're going to be happy with your results, but wish you the best of luck.

    Can I suggest you take it to someone who works with gold a lot, like a jewelry store or something of that nature? They would know how Gold ages, and be able to give you some helpful advise on what direction in what way to go to get your coin verified. Usually many coin dealers stay away from gold pieces for obvious reasons.
