Hello
I arrive today, I would like to know if it is original since I have my doubts?
And if it is not fake, what is its grade? Thank you






Thank you.

Looks like a fake to me. I looked up a legitimate example, and yours doesn't match a normal legitimate example.

Half Cents were not minted in 1847.

Doh, you're right.

Starting over, the date logo on this example looks larger than images I can find of the original, but perhaps that's due to the angle of the pic.

That's why it was my doubt.Will it be a test like Mr. John 1 says?
It does not stick to the magnet it weighs the same as to normal one and the same measure 23mm.

It is a fake Half Cent. Look at the point of the curl over the 8. On the OP coin it is over the center of the 8, on both the original and restrike proofs it is between the inner and outer left curves of the 8. And I agree the date is a little larger than it should be.
