1854 With Arrows

Counterfeit 101

 Obverse 1: Handcut Die, The Old Man on the Rock

Reverse A: Handcut Die, Huge Letters


Obverse 1                                                              Reverse A


Comments: Weight is 12.2 grams and has a dark silver metal appearance. Specimen exhibits partial edge reeding and normal coin turn die alignment. I've labed this counterfeit variety as the "Old Man on the Rock" due to the bearded appearance of Liberty's head. Note the huge handcut date, stars and letters on reverse.

Plate Coin: B. Greer Collection, G-VG Grade Estimate

1854 With Arrows Counterfeits: 101, 102, 103, 104
