Real or fake? Thoughts?

Post by JackBnimble01 » Tue Oct 06, 2020 1:07 pm

Has anyone ever seen a coin like this?
If it’s real is it rare?
Thanks

Fake. The Chinese have taken to faking error coins in recent years.

Thanks
Seller wants 3500.
Color looks off also!
This is the other coin he is using
As a comparable coin!
I just told him to send it to pcgs
So many scams, really need to do
Your home work!!

Real ones are exquisitely rare and valuable.

Here's a real one that Heritage sold for $19,200 three years ago. I'm sure it's just a coincidence that the fake coin being offered is the same date, mint mark, and the off-centering looks remarkably similar.

Or not.

Thoughts are real: coin is fake.

Is it my imagination or is the clearly fake raw piece showing a reeded edge?

Good eye. It is so apparent once it's pointed out. I love learning here. Thanks.🐍

I love Morgan errors, having quite a varied collection of them myself

The railroad rim partial and full reeds is of my favorites, but these as shown
really command stellar premium dollars

Large odd struck thrus show up less these days as collectors have scarfed
them up for years. 1921 in expensive and less dramatic examples are still
readily availably and cheap
