    Yes, you are having trouble understanding the request for more information. Try again or forget it.

    Judging by the picture (which the lighting isn’t optimal), and the asking price, I’d say it’s worth the risk!

    If it’s lightly worn, with no problems, and the price is fair, then yes it’s worth buying.

    Asking,

    It’s hard to find a 1798 dollar that doesn’t look worn. There are few 1798 dollars in Mint State, and those that exist are super pricey. I have two, a small and a large eagle piece in VF-EF.

In recent years I have been working on a set of British coins - at least one coin from each king or queen who issued pieces that are collectible. I am also collecting at least one coin for each Roman emperor from Julius Caesar to ... ?

    I assume the pictures were removed.... None appearing now, so cannot give an opinion. Cheers, RickO

    Since it really do be like that, yes, it's worth buying, whatever they're asking, pay it. In fact, you should double their asking price, they're trying to low-ball you, don't let them get away with it.

    Absolutely worth buying a worn looking 1798 dollar; I'm actually looking for one and would like to see the one you are considering!

    No, he never posted any. Hence all the sarcasm. What a dweeb.

  • davewesendavewesen Posts: 5,837 ✭✭✭✭✭

    yes, you can never have too many 1798 dollars

    It must be so worn that it became invisible.

    Here are the two coins in my date and major variety set.

    Small Eagle type

    Large Eagle type. This coin is slightly important. It was a plate coin in the first edition of Dave Bowers' early silver dollar book, but it disappeared in the later edition.

    Your collection never ceases to impress. 👍

    The chicken and the eagle. Love the two 98's next to each other.

  • burfle23burfle23 Posts: 2,189 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I am curious if this is a troll triad?

    Very nice Bill. Love the strike on the large eagle.

    It's hard to interrupt someone who is arguing with..... uh, themselves?

    Throw a coin enough times, and suppose one day it lands on its edge.

    Lmao no I'm not a troll. I have over 300 posts. That was me adding to the sarcasm.

    Asking,

    Unless you post pics and tell us the asking price, it would be impossible to answer your question. There are fake coins, artificially toned coins, harshly cleaned coins, etc in this series that should be avoided. If you want an early dollar, suggest buying one in a top tier grading service slab from an established dealer.

    Worry is the interest you pay on a debt you may not owe.
