Counterfeit 104

 Obverse 4: Cast from Genuine 1853 WA Hubbed Obverse, Poor Stars 9-13

Obverse 4                                                           Reverse D


Comments: Counterfeit is white metal with edge reeding, weight 2.0 grams. Fairly well executed, the coin looks better than the photos indicate. Note that Stars 9 through 13 are poorly defined as compared to the Variety 103 counterfeit, also from genuine hubbed obverse die as model.

Plate Coin: J. Frost Collection, VF Grade Estimate
