Hi, I need to find out if these coins are real or not.
1797 Draped Bust Large Cents is 10.90 grams and Diameter is about 29mm
1828 Half Cent is 5.45 grams and Diameter is about 23.5 mm
(diameter was measured with a ruler, I don't have caliper)

If they are real what would be value of them?




Thnak you

In my humble opinion, both look to be modern copies. Compare your coins to pictures of real coins on a reputable auction site like Heritage Coins

Total junk. Obvious fakes. Surely these don't look real to you.

Thank you, All I just thought they could be real because the weight and dimensions are really close to the real ones.
