    Could be copper plated with something magnetic.

    The second "4" looks like it was added. It appears to be somewhat larger than the first "4".

    it looks a little like this one in coinfacts, but hard to tell

    The last 4 is incorrect. Altered date.

    Where did you get it?

    Great transactions with oih82w8, JasonGaming, Moose1913.

    The second four looks quite crooked in alignment to the first four.

    I am not sure where I got it, had it for awhile and cleaning up my accumulated collection of stuff.
    It does not look tooled under higher magnification, but slight 'machine/ejection doubling' to the right
    could be very well added digit and will soak in acetone after I get a scope picture in next couple days.

    I just noticed the middle date coin I posted appears to be a minor Ddo. The steelie has too much distance between the 4s. Somebody went through a lot of work but got it slightly wrong. Too bad (it’s not genuine).

    That is an added or tooled second '4'.....Good pictures... Cheers, RickO
