So, I inherited a jar of coins from my grandmother, who died ten years ago. The inheritance was a jar of old coins, with a list of prices for them when they were categorized a few years later by my dad. It had been missing/forgotten on a shelf until tonight, and when opened up the jar, pic related was what I found at the top in a little sandwich baggy.

First google results indicate SWEET BABY JESUS, I'M RICH!

First thoughts: "Find out if this is fake, right the fuck now."

So, how do I tell if a coin is fake or a re-print, and barring that, is this coin a fake and how can you tell?

Go to a coin collector and pay the small amount to have them checked out. It's a worthy investment if they do give you money. Otherwise it's a sunk cost.

Remember to do an inventory of the coins before you go--just in case they try to jew you (which I doubt they will)

either this or take digital photos closeups of all the coins and email the file somewhere

do internet search for - coin appraisals

this is the internet age, no need to drive all over town etc

Brasher half doubloons are gold coins. For one, gold doesn't tarnish, whereas this looks like old brass; and two, you can clearly see that this coin is was plated, with a different metal showing in spots where it's been nicked and dinged.
