Answer
Hi Walt,
The prices for these Orange Free State pattern coins range somewhat widely. It depends on overall eye appeal of the coin just as much as the technical grade. In Specimen-64 Brown with good eye appeal you can expect in the range of $2000.
Thank you for the question! :)

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.

Experience

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