Phoney baloney coins as learning tools - CLOSED

I have a dozen counterfeit plated so called dollar coins that I obtained from a flea market vendor. They're all magnetic. I am in the process of stamping the word "COPY" on each one cause they're not leaving my possession until they're defaced. Pic of the first tagged one is attached as well as the lot. If anyone wants one of these things as an educational aid, let me know, I'll mail you one. The only caveat is you gotta have forum credibility. No monkey business. Happy holidays. Peace Roy

    Very interesting.
    I guess they will counterfeit anything....who would think a 1968 Mexico would be a fake?

    To a small time crook even $10-20 is a score.

    Interesting giveaway. Thanks for taking the time to deface them. The seated or trade $ would make a nice start to a counterfeit 7070.

    @GaCoinGuy I had that fleeting thought but I snapped right out of it.

    The trade dollar would be interesting to study. First time I’ve seen one of those fake Mexican coins as well.

    Just a bump. I would think a YN would want to have a phoney baloney coin to remind them why it's a good idea to carry a hard drive magnet while examining coins. Free to my forum friends to gift to a YN in your life. Let me know.

    Got them in today. They look well....Fake. Could immediately tell they were off by how light they were and the reeding was off. Thanks @Namvet69 for the learning tools.

    I just found this forum 😳🙀
    We connected on the main forum and I thank you again. This is the second time you have sent my YN cool stuff. We received some wooden nickels from you.

    I’ve done 3 giveaways and never did anyone rudely or otherwise point out that this existed. Wonderful group of folks here. James
