    The "M" in UNUM is hilarious! Compare it to a real coin.

    1878-S with 3rd reverse of 1879 (slanted top arrow feather).
    Not a genuine VAM (none were originally made in that configuration).

    A product from a not ready for prime time counterfeiter. He’s a ways from the “not quit ready for prime time” distinction.

    Retired dealer and avid collector of U.S. type coins, 19th century presidential campaign medalets and selected medals. 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. I am also collecting at least one coin for each Roman emperor from Julius Caesar to ... ?

    Bad metal

    Not real. Finding any 1878 with full hair above the ear is RARE, and the reverse is wrong. What does the edge show?

    The lips are very strange looing, like there was Botox used in the minting process.

    As do other things, such as the wing tips not having a space between denticles and font differences. The corner of the mouth is different as the upper lip. Just an opinion. Thanks to all for your replies.

    "Duck Face" counterfeit variety. She must have the selfie stick out again.

    I am a newer collector (started April 2020), and I primarily focus on U.S. Half Cents and Type Coins. Early copper is my favorite.
