This coin I have is missing a letter. I've looked on the Internet to see any Carolus coin with the missing 'F, but all have in the back where the 'F' belongs to 'FM'
Is it worth anything?
How much?
How much should I sell it for?

Answer
Hi Jovany,
Unfortunately I have some bad news for you. This coin is a replica, it was made by casting in a mold rather than being struck on a blank piece of silver. It does not appear to be a modern replica, but not an antique one either. The value here would be as a novelty only.
Sorry for the bad news, thanks.

Expertise

My specialty is world coins from the 18th to 20th centuries, primarily non-US foreign coins and related areas such as errors and exonumia (tokens, medals, etc.). I can answer questions relating to identification, grading, selling, preservation and evaluation of such items. In addition to catalog value, I can give you the practical market value and trends for specific types of coins. I will also take questions regarding counterfeits (both modern and antique) and on how to identify them. I am NOT knowledgeable in paper money/banknotes, ancient or "shipwreck" coins. Thank you.

Collector of world coins since early childhood. Access to a variety of auction records and reference material. You can also find me on Facebook.
