I want to buy this coin: Silver rider of Gelderland 1775, but I'm not sure is its real or a replica. The weight is 32.7 g, and the diamater is 42mm.
Can someone pls help me.


Weight and diameter are correct. Comparing with a known genuine copy here, I find no significant differences. If you are still in doubt, check the edge (no seems, few if any irregularities) and whether it is good silver (any jeweller can tell, from the picture it looks good to me.) I would spend money on it, but you have to make your own decision.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.
