Is this a real brothel token? Its the same weight and has the same wear and tear as other large cents.

Waynoah83 I removed your last image as this is a family friendly forum as well as moved your topic to a more appropriate forum.

Not sure about a brothel token but graffiti such as this was fairly common back then.

I realize that. It was just the image that was not allowed

I did not see the last image, not that I really need to. Was the word "cent" altered? If so, my LCS showed me one of these, and I am sure that it has occurred to many people over the years. .

Common on flying eagles cents as well.

Yeah sorry. The altered reverse rhymed with bunt. After looking at it again you csn see where the metal was moved around. Pretty clever. I honestly thought it was a fake but was wondering why go through the trouble to make a fake that good. The wear and shape and everything looked so real and now I know why...

Not a brothel token, just a cent that someone altered. If it were a real brothel token there would have been a WHOLE lot more of them being "privately" made. There are no genuine US brothel tokens good for services, just a few that are good for drinks at the bars associated with the brothel.

In before someone post an altered Flying Eagle cent.
