Counterfeit 103

 Obverse 3: Cast from Genuine Obverse

Reverse C: Cast from Genuine Reverse


Obverse 3                                                            Reverse C


Comments: Weight at 4.5 grams with 24.10 mm diameter and 1.56 mm thickness. There are traces of the silver wash on both obverse and reverse. The date position on Obverse 3 is quite similar to Obverse 2 with the date digits being closer to the denticles than the base. However the mintmark size and position is different between Reverse B and Reverse C, therefore a separate Counterfeit 103 listing was selected.

Plate Coin: L. Schmidt Collection, VG-F Grade Estimate

1877-S Counterfeits: 101, 102, 103
