I got two older ASEs in the mail today. Both are overweight -- one (with just the slightest bit of a hint of a patina) is overweight by 0.15 grams, the other (fairly tarnished) by 0.25 grams.
Anything to worry about?
I got out my calipers and the physical dimensions are correct. I trust the scale accuracy based on other measurements. Any of you guys ever see an ever-so-slightly overweight ASE like this? The years are 1990 and 1991 if that makes any difference.
I will check tomorrow as I believe some with that date. It may take a bit to find them though!
I suggest taking them to a local coin shop for evaluation.
@$40/oz that first coin is overweight by $0.20 and the second one by $0.32. That's not much. I wouldn't worry about it.
