Hello, I have a 1904 $20 piece that I am attempting to value. The problem I'm running into is that all of the $20 coins, made in 1904, appear to be made of gold. The coin I have does not look like it's gold. I've attached two images (they are a little blurry). Thank you, George.

Answer
Hi George,

Sorry but what you have is a fantasy replica coin.  You're right, it's not gold, but rather some combination of base metals.  I've seen many of these.  They have a novelty value of a couple dollars.

Wish I had better news for you,

Dan

Expertise

My strong familiarity with all U.S. Mint coins, extensive reference library, and close relationships with many other dealers allows me to identify just about any coin made in the USA. I receive regular updates to all the current price guides -- both wholesale & retail -- to provide accurate values. So, with a good description or pictures, I should be able to identify and value any U.S. coin you have.

Experience

I've been a coin dealer since the 1980's and a coin collector since the 1960's. I specialize in U.S. Silver Coins and have an active online website -- The Working Man's Rare Coins -- http://www.workingmancoins.com -- offering information and inventory in U.S. coins.
