The Indian cent is an obvious fake. Looks like a 3 in novelty paper weight. The Morgan dollar looks most likely real.

I personally think they are both fake, the date on the Morgan looks off. So does the wheat stalks on top of the bust.


EDIT: Eagle wings not positioned right either. Especially the right one.
1. I'm no expert but I'll give my two cents.

2.My favorite coin so far: 1913 Buffalo nickel matte proof type II reverse

Indian looks plastic

Morgan looks more like a real coin but does it ring true?

If that Morgan is real, I'll eat my culls.

The cent looks like play money, not even a serious effort at counterfeiting. The dollar looks like 1896, not frequently faked as I recall.

Wish I could do a drop test on that Morgan- probably just having in hand would clarify if fake. Silver dollars have a very specific sound when lightly dropped on edge. Weight and basic feel is also a good tactile indicator. I have a harder time with certain visual indicators...

You can also try the tissue test to see if it is silver.

Try a comparative ping tone test against a known genuine Morgan.
