    Are there a lot of raw fakes with this coin on Ebay?

    @lordmarcovan - Very nice example. I've looked at hundreds of these, and most are dull to very dull. Yours has very nice luster for the grade and a great strike.

    The background on these is interesting: 1934 China "Junk" Dollars were re-struck in 1949 at three US mints (P,D,S) and are indistinguishable from the original 1934 dollars and from each other.

    Probably. However, it's not like certified examples are not available. At PCGS, there are 10,157 in PCGS MS62 and 23,200 better. That allows you to be choosy, either lustrous or nicely toned or both.

    For my World Coins Manufactured by US Mints set, I went the toned route. Got this from CRO a few years ago:

    Yes, it's definitely a high-population coin. Not like an 1881-S Morgan dollar, but five-figure pops in 62 like mine.

    @mvs7- that toner is SWEET!

    Your junk looks like it's sailing into the sunset.

    Nice pick-up LordM!

    All this talk of population in various grades got me curious, so I checked out the coinfacts page for this Dollar where I saw this monster:

    Nice boat dollar!

    It could be a 1949 restrike due to the uncirculated condition.

    That is INDEED a monster!

    (Of course, if I was the one submitting it, it would have come back "questionable color".)

    Looks like clear saying. You'll have to find one with a few birds on it now

    The Nationalist government also put the reverse of the boat dollar on their paper money in 1949.

    These didn't help as the Communists took over the country anyway.

    Here's one coming up at Heritage...

    Republic Sun Yat-sen English Matte-Proof Pattern "Junk" Dollar Year 18 (1929) PR65 NGC, dies prepared at the Royal mint but struck in China, KM-Pn99, L&M-94, Kann-615. One of the six different 1929 Junk Dollar patterns struck by various countries, this English type is instantly recognizable by the roiling seas on the reverse. This Matte-Proof specimen is the first we have seen in this finish or been able to locate in our research, as this rejected pattern was produced for the most part just above the standard of a typical business strike. In addition to the rarity of this exceptional piece, the remarkable state of preservation must also be mentioned as an example certified in a Gem designation is seemingly nearly as rare, this piece being unequalled in Proof at NGC and tied with a single business strike certified in MS65 with none finer at either NGC or PCGS. Whether produced intentionally or a product of mint sport, this example is potentially unique and certain to stand out among the highlights of the most advanced collections of the Chinese Republic.
