Hi. Anyone see this error before? Doesn't look like 8 over 7. All helpful info is appreciated. Value too. Thanks

The date numerals bear no resemblance to the correct style for this series. See this eBay listing for comparison: 372417862364

It's counterfeit.
Besides the date being wrong, there are other
differences on both the Obverse and Reverse.

Wow... How can a person trust a coin dealer if great looking fakes are on the market? I was sure the coin was real. How can someone make a fake with such amazing detail? UNBELIEVABLE!

Counterfeit. Date is the main "tip-off" for this being a fake.

There are "great looking fakes" on the market, but this isn't one of them. This one just screams FAKE! As mentioned the date font is all wrong there are raised blemishes all over it, the surface texture is wrong. Once you have a little experience something like this is laughable.

I'm no expert on determining fakes. I believe some people do admire them in there collections.

Was curious if it is a fake, if it was 90% silver or not? Thanks, Doug.

This is a typical Chinese Counterfeit.
It would contain no silver.

All of their 1918-S's have that same funky looking date. $1.39 apiece.
