I have a 1933 $20.00 gold coin i found in my father's stuff who has passed away and am wondering how to go about sending it to you to get it checked out

Roger Belmar

Thank you! A very instructional video. Any serious collector needs to be knowledgeable about counterfeits. I carefully inspect and study every coin I buy for the irregularities this excellent video mentions. Ignorance in numismatics is definitely not bliss. It’s difficult to give anyone guidelines in this area because even reputable dealers have been known to unwittingly sell fakes. It’s always best to be clued up about counterfeits.

This is really god examples.. but you need to be a expert like the guy who is talking to know what is real ...

Great video!

Little Moe Silver

Not appearing to be ignorant, but I have a question for you...Do you think it is relatively safe to buy gold coins from reputably bullion dealers, such as Ampex, and Provident Metals?

Why is it so hard for counterfeiters to make things as crisp as genuine coins?

Miriam Loyola

I have a 20 dollar coin how do I know if it's real. ? It's it normal size the one i have is large and it has no date or in god we trust

I have 1913 5 cents buffalo, i bought it online, but i disover the overse is buffalo and the reverse is not an indian head. Is this coin i have is a counterfeit coin?

MizzAugust

I dont care - for the flip, I will alway prefer, face & face, eback & back, for comparison. The flip, loses any memory , of differences, so, then, the brain can NOT , remember, the few basic standards it possibly could have.

Ahmed Khalifa

ANY COIN COULD BE OF GET SCRATCHES ON IT BUT YOU CANT JUST JUDGE ITS FAKE FOR THAT .

Ryan G

On the 2.5 Indian what do you mean by ‘tooling marks’ I’ve looked this up so many times and that term seems very subjective.

Entrepreneur's Wingman

Honestly not a good video.

Parts of this video deserve praise, like the attention given to detail, die polishing consistencies, die-crack lines, incuse vs. relief, etc. Also, it is interesting that you put such an strong emphasis on your disclaimer that this is not a complete breakdown of counterfeit indicators.

But when you mention the many types of die characteristics to look out for, you talk about these "depressions" that are often indicative of counterfeits, and you unfortunately leave out any explanation of how these "depressions" that are often found on counterfeits come about.

Some questions I can think of about these "depressions":
1) What causes these depressions? Are they caused when a counterfeit planchet is not rolled out properly, or is it caused during the striking process?
2) Are they more often found on cast-counterfeits, or die-struck counterfeits?
2) How can someone discern a counterfeit-indicative "depression" from a regular bagmark, scratch, or wear on an authentic coin?

The lack of explanation of what causes these "depressions", and how to distinguish them from real coins with regular wear/damage, while still bringing up these "depressions", only causes more paranoia and distrust of the coin market and numismatic industry, which in turn further damages the entire market.

And don't try to downplay the importance of this, or excuse your damaging behavior. While you can hide behind that "This is not a complete explanation" disclaimer, the fact is that if you can offer an explanation for these "depressions" you should have included it in this video. People don't have time to research the bowels of the Internet for answers on esoteric topics. If you bring up a problem, give the answer to it.

I'm disappointed in you PCGS.

Jake Tran

really good vid!

PeopleCanFly23

Why don't you just weigh the coin?

Profit Potentials In Privacy Coins™ #5 - What Does A Privacy Coin Need To Succeed? - By Tai Zen

Phoenix1969

You guys are so transparent to pump the crap coins right after you bought into them.
The teaching theme is a nice touch too... problem is you don't understand blockchain and that "privacy" is nonexistent when all anyone need do is watch the outputs. It's a fallacy made for sheeple.
Those using "mixers" are even at higher risk of outputs being followed, because you have something to hide by proxy alone.
As an example, look at the Onion Router network (.io). At the very top of the onion router page it clearly states: "the onion-router.net site formerly hosted at the Center for High Assurance Computer Systems of the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory.". Now, do you REALLY think that the Department of Naval Intelligence would release to the public something they couldn't readily read? Think about that for a moment.
A better term to describe "Privacy coins" would be "Exploitation entrapment networks"
also the english needs polish... "Bitcoin lacks" is proper, not "Bitcoin is lacks"

J B

Love your work guys thanks and keep up the quality content! ?

Galvin

On all videos, audio seemed to be a little low. And on this video even lower. Maybe something you guys can work on. Great work! thanks

Demetrio Landeros

I just laugh at your haters.

project10bball

which "privacy coin project" sponsors this series?

Gary Palmer Jr

This is NOT a full disclaimer if you do not disclose who the "privacy coin project" sponsor is for this series. So, who is the "privacy coin project" sponsor for this series?

Phoenix1969

There is no "Privacy coin" which will EVER make it to mainstream adoption because TRANSPARENCY is the key into mainstream markets.

priitraag

SHA1, not SH1

Dmitry

What do you guys think about Shadow Cash recent announcement?

Brad Baker

"All the value of a coin comes from it's community". I disagree. The value comes from real world usage, for real non-speculative usage. That is if you want long-term value. Short term fine. Look at Steemit. Had a great community support yet has all but died due to poor economic design and non-sustainable biz model. Btw, it also had great self-marketing due to the social blogging. So even marketing is not necessarily gonna save you. You need a combo of things. But significant real world usage (strong use-cases) will fix almost any other flaws. It will always survive if it solves a real need.

Barry Dutton Sells Homes

This is a great series you guys are doing. There is so much good information here and new people can understand it easily, great job again.
