Counterfeit 1901-P Morgan ????

Post by ABC_COINS » Mon May 25, 2020 10:56 pm

Hello..
Need opinion on this 1901-P Morgan... Looks odd?? Date looks odd?? The reverse looks like it was originally maybe a 1921 obverse...
The letters are odd... reverse where LLAR star A... The R looks like a 1 of the 1921 Stars look funny at bottom portions, the A looks like a star was under it giving a funky look... at first S of states and wing looks odd... Struck through in many areas obverse and reverse like cheek....???
Spacing of letters... Weak eagle and strong lettering... Eagles leggs Odd...

What does anyone think????
Appreciate Input....

Well, the first thing that caught my eye was the fact that it looks like an XF DMPL cameo, which, of course, makes no sense for a few reasons. The pictures aren't good enough to say much of anything else, but I'd avoid this coin.

The date, at least, looks funny to me. Not a good funny.... :(

Because the pics are not the best, I tried to focus on something that stood out. Going with VH's point, the '1's don't match. US Mint wouldn't do that. At least w/o having in hand, that's the best I could do... :lol:

Like John B said, even if the coin is real, the surface isn't. - not even a little
often the crusher of hopes and dreams

Fell for coin and images... Learned something here.... Images can be altered and coin can be too... Returned for refund after... Wow... Chrome look, extra metal from anodizing, looks like 1901-O altered... Deep tool marks... Just a mess... Gas station wouldn't take it with some 1's for a pack of smokes... Bad.

Date looks funky - letters around the obverse are uneven distance from the rim. Counterfeit IMO.
