A counterfeit with serious problems. The original dies to create this thing were pretty much toast. I don't know what it was made of but it has a rudimentary edged rim and no copper core.

The reverse fake die was toast. Here is a sand cast coin.

That's something else. Just curious what the weigh of this one is?

I've been told that magnesium is used a lot for these fakes since the color resembles circulated silver.

ps.I bought some fake Morgans on purpose from a friend who was taken to the cleaners on a group of 10 (he paid $15 each) that were inside a pvc page from a binder and taped up tight. 8 different date CC Morgans and 2 Peace that couldn't be removed to weigh only one coin individually (his digital scale couldn't weigh 10 "silver" dollars). All the different dated CC's had the same reverse with a pair of die gouges over the LL of DOLLAR. When I got them home to crack one out, they weighed between 19-19 grams. Almost half the weight of genuine ones.

Pete, er, it's in the header above the images.

Recently I got a world of Morgan fakes off another board member, bringing my total of them to something around a-whole-heckuva-lot. Almost all are non-magnetic and underweight, so I can understand why a bad seller would make weighing things tough. I think the same crowd are the ones faking the Peace dollars as well since quite a number of them are pretty much the same.

Er, ah, so it is. LOL (Earlier, I must have been a reeeeal hurry to go metal detecting.)
5.67 grams is pretty close to a real quarter.

Yeah, the Peace dollars I got were fake errors as well. They had a strong Eagle "clashed" over the bust of LIBERTY. The deep parts of the bust wouldn't be a place for a true clash to show up.
