    Cannot speak to the colonial but the rest of them are right as rain.

    If I had that first coin, I would probably just throw it on eBay with a shrug of a description and let people more knowledgeable than me decide what it's worth. Even if it is a contemporary counterfeit, it probably has value to a collector of such.

    I wish the 3 cent silver was a contemporary counterfeit. They're expensive as such!

    So you are saying that someone who sells copies can only sell copies, or if they sell genuine coins they can only sell genuine coins?
    That is literally saying "this coin is real because those coins are real", which is not a valid argument.

    No not at all what I'm saying,,, I said I wanted to show you all what I seen when I bought my supposed fake coin surrounded by real coins all different years.
    That's all

  • amwldcoinamwldcoin Posts: 11,269 ✭✭✭✭✭

    The 1st coin is not a colonial. It's an English Farthing or Half Penny that most likely that was found with a metal detector.

    Me see no counterfeits, just a few that are abused!

  • SlickCoinsSlickCoins Posts: 658 ✭✭✭

    I'm not trying to do anything but paint a picture of how one might think it is strange for a supposed reproduction to be amongst real old coins.
    I'm not a troll.
    Thanks all,,, it was a simple creditability check.

    He needs fresh trolling meat and is fishing for someone to get him started with the authentic vs counterfeit nonsense.

    He can't play if we don't.

    You are calling him out. You stated his name. And this thread is inappropriate. It is either you trolling the seller or advertising the seller. Either way, it doesn't really belong on the forum.

    That's really not what you said in the OP. And all we really have is you erroneously "supposing" a coin to be a reproduction.

    Saved from an edit.

    This thread is just another "back door" attempt to reopen a discussion on the OP's counterfeit large cent - a discussion which the moderators have already closed twice.

    PS I'm my opinion it was free advertising not calling anyone out, I was thinking about getting the coins,,,I still have questions on my other old cents and we know how well things go.

    To answer about that mark in my opinion it's obviously not PMD and the mint in fact did do it & it's not supposed to be there therefore in my book hmmm think about it.

    Anyways thanks all for everything :)

  • SlickCoinsSlickCoins Posts: 658 ✭✭✭

    So I should've said to do the flattening on said coin,,,, wait what what what :)

    Yes to flatten the supposed 8,,, well you're gonna have to make a machine doubling die in my opinion cause you'll never match it perfect,, plot thickens

    This is where the fire within ignites for I've been in the Counterfeit coins forums part and see this a lot :(

    Hmmm machine doubling cause I doubt you all will call it a double die would most likely be IMPOSSIBLE back then.

    Let's see shall we :)



  • seanqseanq Posts: 8,575 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Look up "Longacre doubling" and lay off the sauce.

    No. I was thinking about it and moved on with my day. That was a decent deal for a scarcer bogus 3c
