Hello! I just came across this coin the other day and I was curious if it was authentic or not and if so how much it would be worth. I know it was minted in Carson City and was the first of its kind there but that's all I know! If anyone could enlighten me on this coin I would appreciate it very much! Thanks!

Welcome to the Community!

Your coin appears to be counterfeit.

The date font is 100% wrong. In addition, the dark artificial toning is characteristic of a Chinese manufactured replica coin. The toning and manufactured "wear" is designed to fool and defraud the casual collector.

Here is a look at the date compared to a genuine coin the font on the 8 appears very different.

Definitely a counterfeit. Details are way off. Looks nothing like the real thing.

That they can make a counterfeit look toned like that is frightening.

I am not so sure that this is a fake, the date placement does look correct though a little rough (maybe dinged). I would suggest looking through this site to try and find the variety if possible. http://www.seateddollarvarieties.com/1870-CC.shtml
