One of the more unusual contemporary counterfeit Seated dime varieties known.  Struck on a brass planchet.  This example has the word 'AMERICA' misspelled as 'AMERICU'. The date was also hand-sunk into the die. The reverse appears to be from a transfer die with reworked denticles, which may match another counterfeit Seated dime variety (pending analysis and confirmation).
