    To try with teeth

    Is it right to say "The merchant tried the coin with his teeth" (if I mean that he wanted to check if it is not a fraud)?

    Re: To try with teeth

    I'd probably use "tested", not "tried".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
