Dont' worry I've one too, and I've got this money from volcano island (samosir islan) in the midle of lake toba.

the 1804 weight is 27.2 gram or less & diameter 39.5 mm, I'ask local jawerly they said it made from silver & cooper .
trade dollar weight 28.4 gram or less, diameter 38.1, made from silver and cooper
the morgan weght 29 gram, diameter 38.1 mm, made from silver & cooper

I've study it too, and I belive it's real because it's more than hundred years there.
I've ask some expert, no one can belive even we got in dexter pocket.

please take a look what I've got some hobby from local samosir island

Dear Mr. Reid

One reasonable why the coin was there. Remember this is not my story, I'm sorry. I'm just do my home work.I don't know them who Photos this island, I don't know the publisher form the straits times and it was 6 month ago.
-----------------------------------------------

5 things to do

1 Do engage the locals in conversation.Many of them speak reasonably good English and will share a lot about the island.

2 Do carry S$1 coins to hand out to locals who have been helpful. Many of them collect foreign coins as souvenirs.

3 Do attend Si Galegale performances which are put up at several venues. It is up to you if you want to place money in the dollís hand (below).

4 Do read guidebooks and, if possible, Forgotten Kingdoms In Sumatra before visiting Samosir to better understand what the island has to offer.

5 Do show respect by dressing modestly and behaving appropriately when visiting and photographing the decorative tombs all over the island.

2 don'ts

1 Donít tip too heavily, so as not to spoil the locals into expecting big handouts from subsequent visitors.

2 Donít speed when riding a rented motorbicycle. There are no hospitals on Samosir.


Historian-cum-archaeologist F. M. Schnitger visited Samosir in the 1930s during his exploration of Sumatra, and a chapter in his subsequent book published in 1939, Forgotten Kingdoms In Sumatra, provided comprehensive descriptions and pictures of these tombs.

hank you for your inquiry. An 1896-O Morgan dollar in this condition is worth about $12 to $15.

We can tell from the pictures that the 1804 Silver Dollar you have is a replica. Unfortunately thousands of 1804 dollar replicas were produced in the orient, and discovering a new specimen is highly unlikely.

There are only 15 known genuine specimens of the 1804 silver dollar. Each of the authentic 1804 silver dollars weighs approximately 26 grams, while most replicas weigh approximately 19 to 20 grams. In addition to the weight, a seam on the edge of the coin or the presence of a reeded edge is also an indication that the coin is a replica. Replicas have no collector value.

Thank you for your inquiry.

--------------------------

Well, my coin not from china, but in samosir island form hundred years, and even they want to make a fake coin in that island, why only one ? and whay the trade and the morgan are there too ?

I belive  my coin is one of missing coin ( 3 % is missing), but the expert deny it, they only think about money or coin bussines.

But Mr. Javier coin is beautiful  Morgan Dollar. Not the dexter coin (1804 bust).

If any info, please tell me. thank you.

I know this thread is old, but... all three of the coins pictured are cast counterfeits. Sorry.
