A friend sent me these 2 not so well taken photos of a few coins his grandpa left him. He knows absolutely nothing about coins. When I saw this I had to do a double take. Does it look real or fake and are there any other known examples of a coin similar to this

It's the well know "Off center" 1955 DDO FAKE cent. They've been on the forum before.

I'd say fake--especially evident on the reverse. The wheat stalks look nothing like legit Lincoln cent wheat stalks.

Others will chime in soon.

Counterfeit.

I hope your friend's "grandpa" didn't pay too much for them!

The Chinese keep pumping these out by the boat load. Selling counterfeit coins as genuine is against the law, so tell your "friend" to be careful!

I would put it in a 2x2 flip & label it as a known fake so the next person that comes across it in 100 years will know what it is
