1774 - 1 Ducaton Netherlands (Fake or Genuine)
Hi, First off, a big two thumbs up on your site, some amazing information.
Would just like to find out from the experts if this coin is genuine. I want to place it on Ebay but really don't want to post a fake.
If it's silver then, at least in my opinion, the coin is fine. It has the right weight and the style seems to be ok. This is a Gelderland ducaton and you should be able to find it here

The coin is not rare and the holes in the obverse will decrease its value but i still consider it to be interesting. I recently bought a 1733 ducaton found on the 't Vliegen Heart shipwreck so if i were you i wouldn't sell it!Please wait for some more opinions from Paul ,Richard or Ashley in order to be 100% sure.Reply
