Thank you everyone for your greetings and responses! I feel much better about it now. I'm not in possession of a scale but I will get one soon. The other question I have is, what grade would you give this? I know it's quite corroded but what details grade would you give it? Thank you again!
Hello, I recently acquired this coin in an eBay auction. Upon receiving it, I noticed that the lettering is mostly all concaved on the bottoms. Also, it is larger than my 1842 large cent. I have reached out to a large cent expert, who said it was genuine and an S-138 variety. I'm still on the fence regarding its authenticity and would love to see if anyone could check this coin out and give me their opinion. Thank you!
