    Compare the photo to a real 1943 cent. Then go look at the alibaba fakes.

    I imagine the counterfeiter used a real 1943 steel cent to create his false dies. Since the 1943 cent is steel, it can be hardened and used as a hub to press the design into a blank die which can then be used to strike fake copies of this coin.

    Worry is the interest you pay on a debt you may not owe.

    @Hedi - Throw that counterfeit in the garbage!

    No one will take this coin seriously until after it's been graded and authenticated by a major grading company such as NGC or PCGS.

    I don't know about that - I'm sure someone would pay a good premium on eBay for it! B)

In recent years I have been working on a set of British coins - at least one coin from each king or queen who issued pieces that are collectible.

    Yup. The pic of the coin on the scale looks like a typical circulated steel cent with the dark gray color. I bet a magnet would pick that coin up.

    The same goes for the top two photos, too, especially contrasted with the bronze cent beneath it, So why was all of the talk about a counterfeit bronze example?

    What may I ask is the big coin on the bottom? It looks more interesting.

    I understand that, but the pictures appeared to indicate otherwise.
