The link to the left shows the estimated value of the coins.

There may be a possibility that the coins are a rarer proof coin variate. Perhaps wait for another opinion on the matter first.

Thanks a lot Joshua. Could you also please advise if these seems to be genuine and appears to be cleaned or not. I read another discussion in this community that you have an expertise in checking the genuineness as well. Thanks for your time.

I don't profess to be an expert in authentication of coins, especially through photos, as it is harder.

But, just from my opinion, they seem genuine. I suppose that it could be either silver proofs, or that it was cleaned.

They look nice enough to be proofs, and proofs are extra valuable, as described below. However, as proofs you should have found them in special holders. It is too bad you are handling them with bare hands, as oils from your hands stains the surfaces. Proof coins and uncirculated coins should always be handled using white cotton gloves.

The catalogs show values of several hundred US dollars for proof coins, and for proof-like restrikes.

You need an in-person inspection by a professional.

Would you mind me asking how much you paid for the 4 coins?

I would say that you got a very good deal with those coins if they are of proof quality. I haven't seen one in person yet, but they look to be in good quality and appeal.

I recommend handling them with some cotton sheet/gloves, holding it only at the sides of the coin, and storing it somewhere where you would not accidentally touch the surface, perhaps a zip lock bag or a holder.

And when possible, have them examined in person by a coin dealer, without offering to sell it to him, so that there would be more chance that he is honest in his appraisal. If he thinks it is real as well, perhaps it may be of interest to have your coin certified by reputable coin grading companies such as NGC, while it costs money, a confirmation of authenticity from them is usually held as extremely reputable.

Surely Joshua.. Thanks for your time and advise as always. For my general understanding, as I am not experienced as you, normally to check genuineness in person, coin should not be magnetic, surface should be smooth to touch, weight and measurements should be as standard coins. Do you suggest anything else to check?
