Counterfeits

The die struck 1853 example shown below shares a reverse die with at least one other variety dated 1857. This example was almost certainly made within the last 50 years, although its exact pedigree has not been verified. Nevertheless, the die work does not exhibit the die characteristics seen of nearly all mid-19th century contemporary counterfeit U.S. coins.
