I am new to the community and interested in starting a collection of commemorative half dollars. It seems there are a lot of fake commemoratives floating around. What are some good techniques for spotting these? Perhaps this has been discussed in detail in a previous post.
Many fake commems have been posted and discussed here - you might try entering different terms in the Search feature. Perhaps the most important aid is to compare a prospective purchase with a good photo of a certified example, looking for crude and weak detail discrepancies.
