US 1799 coin

Would like to know if this is real?

  • I think so. It looks genuine, but pretty well beat up. Check the weight. A genuine coin weighs exactly 26.96 grams. Take it to a jeweler and use a scale that measures to the nearest 0.1 gram.

    If it is genuine, it will carry some value. Probably $500 US dollars or so in its current state. Consider submitting it to this conservation service:

    but only if you are convinced it is genuine.

    Thanks for your reply and the advice.

    I'll take it to a jeweler to get it weighed and let you know how I go!
