Counterfeit 102

 Obverse 2: Copy of Genuine Obverse Die, Crude Denticles

Reverse B: Crude Denticles, Reverse Rotated Right 45 Degrees


Obverse 2                                                Reverse B


Comments: Copper metal. Obverse die appears to be from a genuine 1858 obverse die, but the denticles are poorly engraved. Very nicely hand engraved reverse die which is rotated right by 45 degrees. Center weakness in the obverse does not match reverse legend and wreath strength.

Plate Coin: B. Greer Collection, EF Grade Estimate

1858 Counterfeits: 101, 102, 103
