This is the same auction house that had the counterfeit 1893-S $1.

    Check the date against the two date types used that year. The surfaces are very odd looking.

    Date logotype looks all WRONG

    Surfaces also wrong, and probably a deceptive picture too

    Advertised as a 66+ ... :D:D:D

    good eye.

    law enforcement agencies must have their work cut out for them these days. paperwork probably piled like the himalayas.

    aside from these counterfeits en-masse striving to undermine/collapse the entire system, the date is still kinda comical.

    for anyone wanting to do date comps, this will require several coins because the dates are quite varied in style?, position, shape etc, especially for 69 with 68 being right behind.

    Good catch! Definitely a fake. The 186 in the date are almost comical. While eBay is not the best, I do believe that they are the safest. I do not use hibid.
