In all honesty I'm not sure any of them are genuine. That's why I gave them QA and NG.

GrapeCollects, I'm not seeing any markers to the contrary that this piece is not genuine. can you point to what you are seeing that backs up your assessment?

Surfaces and fonts


I agree with the surfaces, however, could we be looking at a corroded or chopped up planchet prior to strike? the fonts serifs and spacing look ok based on the flattening of the letters due to wear. there was only obverse and reverse hub used for this series and the only device engraved in the die was the date so everything should match up other than that and based on what I'm seeing they seem to. I am questioning why all of the coins summited by OP in this lot all have the same overall look which is odd. I think we need some of the copper experts to chime in as well

I'll let individuals more experienced than me discuss the genuineness.

For a grade, I'd go with VF35

I don't know enough about the subtleties of this series to offer any useful input, so I'll just zip it.

I'm just learning how to do variety attribution on late-date large cents. I'm not very good at it yet, so you'd probably be better off having someone more experienced help you. For example, 1842 has 9 different varieties. My thought is if you could attribute your coins that would help verify authenticity. After all, what counterfeiter is going to take the time to counterfeit an 1842 N6 in circulated condition.
