According to Fred Weinberg, who has seen the coin and considers it a fake, he has seen the Treasury report, both of them, that said it was genuine and they were written by agents with experience in paper money authentication who had no experience with coin authentication.

Conder101, that's weird. So the agents had no experience with coin authentication.

Westernsky;

Why would someone spend that much effort, on an item that would have a very small group of interested people ?

So if Hoffman really did make dies to counterfeit these, and they exist, could he strike more of them and sell them as fantasy coins, like David Carr?

Hofmann was kinda of a genius in a sick way. He did things to further his agenda and increase his standing within the collectibles communities....especially the LDS Church community. Coins and paper money forgeries were mostly a side business to him to help pay the bills.

I'm pretty sure I bought one of his paper creations about 25 years ago at a coin show in Utah. It was a large size $1 bill that had been written on to signify that it was part of a soldier's first payment for service. The more I looked at it and read it .... It was actually too good to be true. I eventually sold it on eBay with full disclosure about its suspicious origins.

As far as Hofmann striking more coins? I don't think that's gonna happen as he his locked up in the Utah prison system and isn't going to be released any time soon. More than likely, he will die in prison.

By all rights he should have been executed for the murders he committed.
