Cuba

#1 Unread post by Coinjunkie »

Hello Everyone,

My first post, looking for some guidance. I have a 1920 REPUBLICA DE CUBA VEINTE CENTAVOS, with the shield and wreaths as where I find when I look it up. However on the reverse the pictures I see online are of a star with a V in the center. Mine has a solid star in the center with rays off of it. Says, PATRIA Y LIBERTAD, 900M, 5G, 1920.

Any opinion as to what I have? it's circulated but very legible. I have not tested this coin, because all the others mention they are copper-nickel, I swear this sounds like silver?

Thank you in advance!

Hey CJ, welcome; can't wait to see the pics. However, I will see your VEINTE CENTAVOS and Raise you 110 Pesos, it would have been 115 but I gave my bro in law 5. Yes they are crisp uncirculated. ♦♦♦♦♦
