Comparion of Counterfeit with 1856 Small Date F-112
Comments: Obviously a cast counterfeit weighing at only 1.8 grams and most likely lead or antimony base metal. Normal coin turn obverse and reverse alignment with poor reeding, again from the casting process. The cast model is simple to diagnose due to the low date position and upward date slope. This is the 1856 Small Date F-112 die pair.
