Please forgive me if it takes me a moment or two or maybe three to get this post going in the right direction. I am new at the whole forum idea and this is only my second time posting within a forum. I will try my best to get my pictures up of this coin. If I can manage too get the photos to upload and every thing goes right I will be shocked but defiantly will be a happy camper. If all goes well I would like to find out if anyone has ever heard of this coins existence and what direction should I take it to get it authenticated to be an actual us coin. Thank you for any information!

With the condition of the coin it may not be possible to say what the last digit is. It may look like a 9, but it's almost a 0% chance that it is. If you are sure it's a 9 and not a damaged 8 you would need to have it certified by a Third Party Grader. It just in too poor of a condition to tell what it is from photos. Sorry.

I would venture to guess it's a damaged 1858. Determining if the last digit is a 9 or not may not be possible considering its condition, but very sharp pics or in-hand evaluation would be needed if so.

I have not heard of an 1859-dated FEC, but I'm no expert.

Appears to be just a well worn 58.

Hello and thank you for your responses first I would like to answer a question that was posted by Greezy Fingers. The answer to your question about why I did not post a pic of the back of the coin and the reason was because the back of my coin was not in question. No other reason but that. Then as for the rest of the reply's I do apologize for the quality of the condition of this coin and the pictures that I have to represent it. It's the best I can get from both. If you zoom in on the pictures I from what I can see with my own two bad eyes is that the last digit doesn't have enough roundness in the lower part of the number to be a well worn eight. If you compare the eight in the second digits place with the fourth digit the lower halves are not the same. The second digit which is an eight is rounded and the fourth is not. The upper part of the fourth digit would favor a seven but it would make that last number half the size of the other numbers and it is also rounded upwards as would be with a number nine. The last digit can't be an eight without being round in the lower area and if it is a seven then it is a rare oddity being only half the size of the other numbers.

@Marcie

The reason why reverse pics were requested is because often times rare coins can be matched to markers from die pairs. That means that the reverse can play a big role in determining a rarity. However, I know of no 1859-dated FECs. What you "see" on the coin is very much up to interpretation. The better route is trying to find what is known. As such, this coin is just damaged, sorry.
