I've been trying to decide whether or not this coin is the real deal. I've been doing all kinds of research but I don't actually have the coin to look at. actually 2 coins. It's a friend's coin[s] and so I only have these pictures to determine and I'm not an expert.
If anyone has an answer for me that would be a big help!
I recently saw one of those Facebook retailers pop up in my news feed, and they had a whole set of fake dollar sized coins just like this one for $25. There was a Trade dollar, draped bust, flowing hair. They also sell bootleg video games. I collect both coins and video games, and it is scary that these internet algorithms curated by the likes of google and Facebook can make these things pop up. It's good to come to places like this to stay informed, so when something like I mentioned pops up, you'll know when to call BS.
