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....
Metal: 90% silver 10% copper
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.
