I have recently purchased a 1799 American coin from a good friend and wish to get it authenicated. As I understand it, there were many replica coins made of the original. Naturally, I am curious about the authenticity of this coin. From the best I can tell, it is genuine based upon the limited amount of information read about it.
In closing, I know EE is normally a technical forum and not geared toward this concern or similiar matters. But, if someone could give me some direction on how I might be able to get started with authenticating this coin, it will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you so much in advance for any feedback given to this question.
