Counterfeit 102

 Obverse 2: Doubled Transfer Die?

Reverse B: Transfer Die?


Obverse 2                                                          Reverse B


Comments: Weight is 12.7 grams with residual silver wash over unknown metal alloy. Medal coin turn die alignment and strong edge reeding. Obverse is grossly doubled and rotated about 40 degrees. Specimen was struck with medal turn die alignment between the obverse date and lower base against the reverse design elements. This is an incredible contemporary counterfeit to view first hand.
