So I found this at work. I took it to the bank (4 years ago) and asked if it is real? They said "no" it is worth 5¢. I should take it to a local coin dealer (He seems shady)... I held on to it. Is it real... From what I can tell it is but then again I'm not good at telling real coins from fakes.

Could someone please give me their best opinion.

Yes, it's real; yes, it's worth five cents; it might be worth a little more since they don't circulate much any more; and, yes, your local coin dealer is probably a little shady - but no more than most.

- I've been collecting Lincoln cents for about two score and seven years & am upgrading to MS as possible.
- I collect all coins minted 1809, 1859, 1909, 1959, and 2009. Lincoln and C.Darwin were both born in 1809. The latter published his "On the Origin of Species.." in 1859, etc.
- I've also completed MS sets of Jeffersons and Franklins and I enjoy the hunt for WLH and "winged liberty" dimes.

It looks like it was plated along time ago . and just kept circulating so half the plating has worn off . yes I believe it's a real Buff worth 5 cents .
Don't take life too seriously and remember it is just a passing fad ......

Real but polished or plated, not worth much more than 5 cents due to the alteration.

Looks like a piece of Littleton's junk (seriously).
