ill give you 7 dollars
Exactly my offer.
The high grade ones were very deceptive counterfeits, by which I mean they would fool most collectors who didn't know what to look for, and prolly most of these "we buy silver" types. The most telling feature (aside from the fact that most dealers
don't have seven TD) was that all raised surfaces, even the stars, had a sandy surface under mag. Of course, if you never saw a real one, or at least real coins from that era, you'd assume that's how they were supposed
The 76s were obvious. Wear wasn't normal, lettering was thin, strike was very weak, they looked polished, etc.
Interestingly, when I told her they were all fake, her reaction was like "gee, really?" I don't know about you, but if someone just told me that $1400 worth of coins were fake, my reaction would be more like "you're a liar" or "I'm gonna kill someone". I suspect she had already been told.
I am presuming an experienced guy like fredd can spot a fake one of these from across a smoke filled room.
Thanks for the faith. I'm not that good, but I try to be right more often than wrong.
