Thanks to a certain amphibian of the Coin World and his 60000'th post contest I won a prize.

Today that prize came in.

I got a letter.



In that letter was an authentic and genuine Counterfeit Henning Nickel.

The Nickel:


As you can see it has the marks of a Henning, the R and no P on a 1944 (War Time Silver nickel)


The weight of the Henning is 5.2 grams.



Compared to 5.0 grams for a regular nickel


And 4.9 for a war time silver nickel


So thank you Mr. Frog for an authentic, genuine and counterfeit Henning Nickel.

I found out the ICG will certify it for its being sent off tomorrow.

And for those that don't know about Henning Nickels, here is some light reading.

This is the prize from my 60K post contest. As I'm sure Helder will attest, the old scratch is hardly visible in hand.

Mr. Frog is correct, you can notice it in the picture as I'm using a full frame DSLR with a Macro Lens, I didn't even notice the scratch until I saw the image. I was checking out the coin and didn't even see it with the loupe.

Tony, I was, but you know the mail is slow. I hope the King Charles Cavalier has a good trip.

Also it was a gold BAR, not a coin. I think the frogster forgot about the gold bar

That's a counterfeit of a US minted Jefferson nickel, looks like an authentic and/or genuine "Henning" Nickel.

To have it slabbed will be very becoming of it....

Edited: and a belated...HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you....

The Henning nickel is quite a prize in its own right. The cheapest one on ebay right now has a $140 starting bid.

Here I am where I must be,

@greasy fingers, thank you for the birthday wish. And I agree it will be very becoming when it gets slabbed in a yellow ICG label (educational label)

@john1, none of the other TPG's will slab counterfeits. Anacs considered it because of the story but decided to pass. ICG was the only one that would slab it.

@spruett001,

It's a wonderful prize! The poison dart of the Coin World out did himself. I am extremely happy to get the Henning Nickel!

But what about poor Charlie the King Charles Cavalier, am I supppsed to let the USPS keep him? Who is going to walk him?
