1838-O No Stars

Counterfeit 101

 Obverse 1: No Stars

Reverse A: Open Bud Reverse, Small O


Obverse 1                                                 Reverse A


Comments: The obverse appears to be well matched to F-101 Obverse 1, however the date on the above specimen is further right than on F-101. Counterfeit Obverse 1 is paired with an Open Bud reverse. Further research of the Small O mintmark is needed for potential association with known New Orleans working dies. This example is the only one known to Brian Greer.

Plate Coin: B. Greer Collection, VF Grade Estimate
