Yea, where did you get those? Unfortunately, there's so many fake US coins floating around the Philippines. If you didn't personally find them then I'd be wary as to them being genuine or not.

Photographs you posted are actually quite good, but I can not say the same for the coins.  Now if they are really Japanese war captured treasure, that may be true and may be not.  But I really doubt they were Official USA coins.  Now that said, since each of the Dollar coins was representing one Dollar in Asia before the war, if taken for One Dollar that was quite a bit of money in the 1920's, in particular China and it's contiguous areas.  Because of that there was considerable counterfeiting going on, not only by Asians but also Europeans doing business in Asia.  Brass coins were made up, counterfeits, and then silver plated to look authentic.  Chinese and such were not familiar with USA currency and if it look good to them, they accepted them in trade for payment.  Locals also made up fake money and passed it around.  Along came the Japanese and looted most of Asia and in doing so sucked up the fake money.  To the low level Japanese soldiers, it looked good to them and they knew they could also use it for exchange.  So it is not uncommon to find fake money in Japanese treasure deposits.  For example a real 1921 USA Silver Dollar is 90% silver, 10% copper.  The coins total weight is 26.73 grams.  Melt down the 1921 Morgan Dollar coin and have it assayed, then let us know what the assay is.  Silver percentage and total original weight of the coin.

Title: Re: FS : Old US Dollar Coins
Post by: mKgold on June 16, 2013, 01:14:25 PM
how or what is your basis saying it is fake? while you haven't seen it in actual.I challenge you to see this in person, before making any "negative" comment. like saying "FAKE". I only use a digital camera in capturing the image, maybe when I use a DLSR camera maybe it would appear better.come let us meet or see each other and asses my coins...
Title: Re: FS : Old US Dollar Coins
Post by: mKgold on June 16, 2013, 01:32:26 PM
just like what sir yamideo said..it has class 1,2,3... whether class 2 or 3...
still you can not say it's fake,, and it depends on the experts... because it is confirmed silver by a pawnshop,that's why I strongly believe it has worth.
PLS. RESPECT THE AD/POST...

Excellent idea Joe. That will definitely end the debate here. If the weight is correct then it's Genuine.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1804_silver_dollar
The 1804 Silver Dollar is an extremely rare United States coin with very limited production in the 1830s and 1860s, long after its face date. As there are only a total of fifteen genuine 1804 Silver Dollars known, it is not too difficult to determine which can be considered to be the finest known.[2] Eight comprise Class I, which were minted in 1834. Two Class I specimens trace their lineage to the King of Siam and the Sultan of Muscat. One comprises Class II and six comprise Class III and were minted sometime between 1858 to 1860. It is alleged[by whom?] both Class II and Class III specimens were made clandestinely by Mint officials. Due to the nature of their rarity, some have been sold for high dollar figures. Replicas and counterfeits exist, some meant to deceive collectors, while others are made to offer a cheap substitute for the real and more expensive coins.

the problem is the star which is really different from the original. If item is a copy and made from silver, then only the silver is valuable. if original made in USA then you are talking millions but if made in china or other countries then its only a few hundred pesos.
