1858 Canadian Penny. Seller states colour looks more realistic in person. These were being pumped out of China for years without the COPY logo. These are from a common website which I emailed the seller and asked if I ordered one would it come with COPY and seller stated that the word COPY has to be stamped on photographs but wont be on the actual coin. Yikes.
EDIT: added "seller states colour looks more realistic in person" from "Looks more realistic in person" - I don't condone nor support sales of counterfeits as I was a victim of fake bullion.
@Chm8Tin2: That's one bad fake! Thanks for sharing!
The depiction of Lady Liberty is cartoonish and lacks the detail of the original - same can be said for the eagle on the reverse. Also the design doesn't match the planchet size - genuine coins don't have rims like that!
I hope they didn't pay the "artist" too much.
