Roman Nero?

I appreciate when people ask about coins but I'm clueless on ancients. I couldn't tell a Greek from a Roman even less over the phone by description alone. I referred him to Hobby Blog he will definitely find there or through one of his many established links on old coins. I did a Google search on HobbyBlog for Roman Nero and found in the top of his list what my friend may have been describing but without the coin in front of me I can't be sure.

Well I say good luck to him he just wants to know if it is a real one and I can't even answer that. I should be fed lions, the shame.

I did see on Hobby Blog a 1963D U.S. dime here.
Here's the stats for that dime....
Year: 1963D
Metal: 90% silver 10% copper
Mintage: 421,476,530
Value: EF-40 $2.00 (EF=extra fine, detail on hair and torch plain to see)

Do you have a coin new or old and want to know its value? Leave a comment/question and I will do my best to find out the price and history for you.Comments are always accepted on this blog as well as phone calls from Eddie while he's working and complaining it's the humidity that make's NY uncomfortable, duh. Keep cool.

My husband works at a gas station and people are always bringing in old/odd/or not the norm coins. He brought home an OLD OLD looking coin and I don't know how to find anything out on it. It seems like it has roman/greek lettering on it. the coin is very uneven in thickness(like not done machines). One side is the bust of a chunky guy (facing the right) with curly hair and looks like a leaf cluster kind of thing around his head. on the reverse side is what looks like it was a maybe a lady sitting/posing on a pedestal holding a staff or stick, with the greek/roman characters all in the back ground. I have taken a couple pics if you would like to see them too.

There are many doubled for that year they will have at least $1.00 extra value.

As far as 3 over 2 I don't think it is possible, probably someone trying o make a fake. Still at this point an expert needs to evaluate it in hand.
