I just wanted to post the info here ,, before it gets removed.

Looks to be a better version of the original fakes, I have reached out to MM, for his advice.



Seller is brand new with no feedback.

If deemed fake, we can move this to the appropriate forum..

Very difficult to be 100% sure by looking at screen shots only, but
it does seem to have a rather 'pasty' appearance about it.

The 1921 date looks off too (too large and the digits too close together). I will say that at a first look it looked real to me, which is scary.

With the 1921 50 cent piece, I would assume fake until proven otherwise.

Even without a picture, all the circumstantial evidence suggests fake: a new seller and an absurdly low starting price if real.

If it's a fake, it's much better done than others. To me, the date doesn't look right, with the 2 "1's" seemingly a different size. The I's on the Obv don't look all alike either. It may just be glare and photo clarity, but it just doesn't look right. A brand new seller starting price (as mentioned above) tells me that there's 11 foot pole marks all over it.

Total fake. Date is the first red flag. The date font is way too big and in addition, the colour of the coin looks weird to me.

Proof is in the pudding! check for yourself!
It is the old story: unless you have an original to compare, you are simply hoping your guess to be right, based on some markers which you are mostly unsure of.
this is a very good copy and could fool a ton of collectors.Unless there were more than one dies used?
But, some might want it just to fill an empty hole. (perhaps not being aware of the possible legal consequences of possession)
And, I bet it is just a test "market" by this seller... Why would he list a extremely rare coin as his first listing?
zero feedback?

The date on the fake is larger and the size/font of the lettering in Cents is smaller on the fake. The distance between the crown and the left leaf tip is further on the fake. It may be also that the "fake" one is slightly tilted in the photo, or at least at a different angle from the real one. I hope Mikey checks in on this.

Pacific,
to be fake, it does not necessarily have to be magnetic....
