1854 With Arrows

Counterfeit 101

 Obverse 1: Reverse Impression on Lead

Reverse A: Reverse Impression on Lead


Obverse 1                                                            Reverse A


Comments: An incredible piece with multiple obverse and reverse base coin reverse impression on piece of soft metal. Obverse to reverse alignment is 90 degrees left with no edge reeding. Weight is close to standard at 1.4 grams since "planchet" is thicker than normal mint product. Lead is likely base metal.

Plate Coin: Unknown Collection, EF-AU Grade Estimate
