  1. Doesn’t look like 3-1/2 legged to me either . Although color looks off looks almost like environmental damage or if it was dipped in an acid long ago not washed off properly ?
  2. Careful now , don’t fluff the the rooster 🐓
  3. Sorry if I sounded mean . Wasn’t trying to be , lately on here there been numerous of questions about same thing you just asked about “U” and “V” on peace dollars and standing liberty quarter …. Some new people come on here ask us for advice they literally turn into a aggressive poster that won’t accept anyone’s advice on here literally wasted some of members time on here even replying to their post …if you stick around and read some of these newbie post from time to time you’ll see what I’m talking about … some members literally stopped helping some of the newer members with questions because of that reason alone… today with power of internet there’s countless articles written on peace dollars you don’t even have to go to a library anymore , lots and lots of information out there VS what we had back in the old days going to libraries and reading up on information … your coin is cool it came from your mom I’d would keep it , welcome to the forums hope you pick up the coin collecting hobby like rest of us have.
  4. Alright I’ll do your homework for you a simple google would of bought it up … some believe it’s Latin , there is no “U” in Latin , during that period of time when peace dollars and standing liberty quarters were minted it’s was Deco period they used “V” instead of “U” … some also believe the “V” was used for Victory after WW1 .
  5. The “V” is normal in peace dollars and as well as on standing Liberty quarters … grade ? is Melt value its pretty beat up
  6. I don’t want to look at it too closely , might start seeing fuzzy doubling will add more unnecessary value to this special specimen
  7. Probably only worth melt value , the fancy fake knock off authentication doesn’t contribute any value for it either
  8. Even if it was an error , world error coins carry little to no premium . Unlike a U.S coins . Error coin collecting is a U.S fetish … I’ve seen tons of errors and double dies and off stuck world coins nobody cared
  9. If you want a book about world coins look into Krause world coin book … those books are size of an old phone book. Some dealers only deal in US coinage only they don’t know much about world coins. World coins are definitely cool some are worth something and some ain’t worth anything . I myself changed over and left my US coin collection behind about 10-12 years ago I mostly focus and collect on old/modern German coinage
  10. You can do this everyday asking if something is collectible , everything is collectible if one put their heart and mind to it …. Now worthiness? That only learned by doing research if you ask on here a lot and not do your homework eventually folks are going to get tired answering it over and over on here . Seems like a lot new people on here are only worried about if something is worth $$$$ instead of really learning the history of numismatic and why we collect numismatic , YouTube ! And others lame videos have ruined this hobby over last several years . Every new person thinks they have double die or some rare “needle in hay sack” coin when it’s not … But if you stick around on here and wanna take collecting a little serious and buy coins that are worth money you’ll learn a lot on here from some of us who been doing it for many years
  11. Can probably soak the heavy dirty ones in acetone Verdigris can be removed with acetone soaking . Just Hope for the best that’s all you can do. Sadly a lot coin collections were ruined like this everyday from bad storage methods for many years
  12. Only thing that may remove that is soaking in acetone , or dipping it … I would return it to the seller it’s his problem
  13. I see it this way , what they are “worth” and what someone is willing to pay is two different things to talk about … there are some people out there with some deep pockets they can buy the whole thing $2895 not even blink an eye or even look for a better deal else where … that would be like my boss who is worth $85 million , to him this would be peanut money to drop to get them all on one deal at $2895 … I don’t think the high rollers waste their time on smaller average Joe stuff … me I would sit back and see how market goes I bet it will drop and cool off after awhile in a year or so
