I think it is fake. The stars are way off for 1842. But the experts I am sure will chime in.

Definitely not my thing but don't some contemporary counterfeits go for high prices?

The crooked letters in ONE DIME are kinda awesome. Plus, she has a squid on her head.

At least it was not priced as a crash test dummy. Those cost 35 grand.

Yes looks like ONE DIME and the date are diagnostic for this fake:

If it were still available I would be a buyer at that price. If Fortin has one in his collection it's not a bad novelty but a piece of Americana. Greer has one too.

I have a few nice French counterfeits, but not as nice as this. It's blundered on so many levels.
