Anyone here able to offer an expertish opinion on a dutch Daalder?
I have an interesting Daalder i rolled the dice on. The coin was sold to me as a PL coin. It is raw. I was skeptical of course but decided to take a gamble. The picture shows what looked like raised polish lines and I knew this would be the key point and that the pictures could lie. But with the coin in hand the lines are definitely raised and look like your typical die file lines in american coinage. But seeing as these coins were hammered in the 17th century, is it even possible that one of these could ever be PL? Here is the the picture of the lion side. The knight side is not like the lion side. The coin is defintely reflective on the lion side and I dont see any signs of a polish on the devices. The raised file lines are exclusive to the fields. Any thoughts? Thanks
