Hello guys. I recently got myself those 3 coins. They looked real to me. Several silver experts also confirmed that these are real silver. But I can't be certain about these coins. Please look at them and tell me if they are real or not.
Best Regards

1843 (O) Seated Liberty

1848 (CC) Seated Liberty

1875 (CC) Trade Dollar

Silver is not magnetic. Find a small magnet and carry it on your key chain to use on any suspect coins.
I have seen some coins cast off real coins using iron or steal. This test will eliminate those fakes.

Magnets also rule out nickel.

Your coins look fake to me

My antivirus software told me the first link was a Trojan. Perhaps you could post images directly.

Thank you for your answers buddies. 1875 Trade dollar isn't magnetic. But the other 2 coins are magnetic. So, those 2 are fake and the Trade dollar one real?

Nickel is magnetic unless mixed with other metals

Stainless steel with nickle is not magnetic, and without it is magnetic.

The 5 cent piece is not magnetic because nickle is mixed with copper.

Hello and

The Carson City Mint was only operational from 1870 to 1893, so an 1848 coin with a CC mintmark must be a forgery.

Yes.
Some fakes are made with silver, (usually not with the the 10% copper real Trade dollars have)
You can also check the rim and edges with known real examples.
Google your coin and look at examples shown.

Best yet, take it to a coin dealer and have hive check or send in to be graded.
