Counterfeit 101

 Obverse 2: Transfer Die from Genuine Coin

Reverse B: Transfer Die from Genuine Coin


Obverse 2                                                Reverse B


Comments: Weak obverse and reverse devices on a diome that should grade at least VF30 based on definiton and wear of Liberty's left leg. Weight is 2.1 grams with normal coin turn die alignment and very strong reeding. The bold reeding is inconsistent with the surface condition. CC mintmark is barely legible.

Plate Coin: Rare American Coins Inventory, VF Grade Estimate

1876-CC Counterfeits: 101, 102
