Figure it's a fake but wanted to see what's people on here think. Looks a little thinner and feels lighter than a original. It doesn't have a ring to it when flipped in the air. My grandma cashed her check back in 69 and received it in her change. Afraid it was fake my dad (17 at the time) gave her 50 cents for it and kept it. It's neat.

looks fake to me. I've got some fake Washington quarters that have similar appearance. I can bend them with my fingers

Cant bend it with our fingers. Don't have a scale that does small increments. If we run across a way to weigh it we will.

Weigh yourself without that coin, then weigh yourself with that coin. Then subtract the first weight from the second one.

That's how I weigh my dog !!

Actually, it is possible to find the weight of suspect coin in a slab using the same technique, and compare with known genuine coin and slab combination.

Its a contemporary counterfeit made of lead. Back then 50c was worth doing this over.
The collection is in your mind. Dispose of your albums and free your mind from the tyranny of holes.

It looks much like one I have. Counterfeit for sure.
