    Obvious alteration from a 1944-D. Those have been around for decades and decades.

    Yes, easy to spot and fun to find. Here's a bigger pic that shows the shoddy workmanship:

    What do you expect from a 9 year old. We were headed in the right direction to become counterfeiters. 😂 🤣

    And we would try smoothing out the scratched area with a pencil eraser.

    I should start a new thread. "Have You Ever Created A Counterfeited Coin?" 😂 🤣

    Should have used one of those old hard as a rock ink erasers that would have scratched a hole in the coin…… (did those things even work?)lol

    I found a whole bunch of altered 1944-S to 1911-S in a coin shop once. The owner was embarrassed. It was the start to a very unusual day.

    I think you did share the story here but perhaps on the sports forum... And to make everyone feel better, take a moment to reflect back at the 1958 season and the match up between UM and Northwestern. It was one of those rare years when the Wolverines and Wildcats were ranked in the top 20 with the Cats at 17th and the Wolverines at 19th. What happened was stunning... Ara Parseghian had the Cats primed and they trounced the Wolverines in a manner rarely seen in Big Ten play- Northwestern won 55-24. The Big Ten likely was the best conference top to bottom that year. That game was the peak for the Northwestern season but they remain one of the few Big Ten Teams to score 50 points in a game against Michigan. I remember Ohio State scored 50 against UM in 1968. Those that remember the game may recall that when OSU scored their last TD, Woody Hayes chose to go for a 2 point conversion- the Buckeyes were up 48-14 before the successful execution.

    Experience the World through Numismatics...it's more than you can imagine.

    And we hung 50 or more points on Michigan twice in regulation. But that "coin shop" game. ouch.

    We also hold the MSU Spartan Stadium record for most points scored against Michigan State, 54-40 in 2016.
