Here are a couple of my Classic Commemoratives in my 7070 Album of counterfeits;

The Oregon looks the fakiest but the toning on these would fool a lot of people.
I have never seen an Oregon lacking so much detail in that state of having little to no wear.

That Grant could have fooled me, less so the others. Thanks for sharing.

Lovely post - fully concur with your assessment as 'black cabinet' examples.

The Grant should be obvious to all informed collectors due to the lack of the incuse designer initials on the obverse below the bust - still agreed that all of these 'coins' could fake a honest collector new to the series.

Wonderful examples all. If you have the real deal to make comparisons to, that might be helpful too.

I have my set, but I know that CSC scare a lot of newer collectors who have few ways to grade or authenticate them.
