Hello
I would like to know your opinion of this currency?
I bought it with others from different dates.They came with some Indian photos. I expose an 1877.

The "pimples" on and near the bust, plus irregular dentices and the shallow dimension from the design elements to the fields are all specific indications of this being a fake.

The details of the letter N on the reverse is too strong to be an authentic 1877 IH.

Correct - this is the "Bold N" reverse, which is only found on proofs of this year (this one obviously isn't).

I thought it was too pretty to be true.
Sele take away the desire to collect.
