I've recently gotten back into collecting coins and stacking silver. But the more I become aware of counterfeits, the more skeptical I get.. But anyway, long story short ;
I bought a 1993 silver eagle online from an antique store and had no issues. But I noticed they have another 1993 eagle, but the details just seem off and I'm not sure what to think of it

This is the one I'm curious about

And this is the one I bought earlier :

I have a hard time believing it's a fake but it just looks a lot different than the other one.
I just need some help determining whether the first silver eagle is authentic.

Thanks in advance &

Not the best condition, so silver value only only re sale.
That is not all bad news.
A few good fakes are around, but even the best fakes are easy to pick out.

You are in a position to do a comparative ring tone against another known genuine ASE.

If you are a silver stacker, you will never go far wrong, if you stick to ASE basic ASE's, because you can do the above test at the point of sale. Take your own known genuine ASE along with you, if you have to, just as a precaution that the seller doesn't volunteer one of his genuine ASE's for the test.

Also works well, for all normal American silver coins, such as silver Dollars and Halves.

I have tested the whole of my silver stack with the ping tone test- in my case, all junk silver.

I don't think it is a fake but I may be wrong.

It looks real to me, other than the really bad wear. Usually I just look at the font of the year and lettering along the rim, for some reason the fakers never seem to get that right, lol.
