    Feel free to post fake coins you spot in this thread. Here is a fake 1872 stuffed into one of those original unsearched rolls. The other end had a bust dime! LOL.

    That date is completely wrong. It also shows a type 2 obverse, which the seller tried to hide…LOL

    Good eye, I didn’t think to look at what type obverse it had. The date made me laugh!

    Yeah–that’s a side benefit of studying RPDs…we can tell immediately when a date is wrong. 🙂

    Did you happen to read the explanation for the obviously wrong details? I don’t believe it–I have never read or seen such a thing. What a story, LOL!
    I purchased this item in private collection. It is unusual that in many of it’s details, it is different from the normal issue. It was and still is in a coin flip that I bought it in. Written on the card is “1870 Design Engraved (Study Piece)”

    Interesting, lol. And he added it might be a Judd variety. Wow. I wrote the seller and told them it was counterfeit or tooled, and all they said was, “Thanks”. Sure is funny how people become experts when they are so determined to sell something for a quick buck.
