  1. Hi Dickson,
    You are really great.
    After keeping them for so many years, finally we realized they were counterfeits, haha.
    Luckily all were acquired free of charge.
    Of course we felt the setback, but at the same time glad that we have expert people like you to guide us.
    It would be great if you could set up a forum so that we could post pictures of our coins for you to verify at your site instead of having to do it in our sites.
    Thanks alot, Dickson :)
