I agree with the counterfeit crowd.

If it comes back genuine, then I'll eat a raw brussels sprout smothered in horseradish.


Horseradish isn't all that bad. That lumpy green scoop, though . . .

Best way to get Brussels sprouts down is to liberally dip them in Cheez Whiz.

Yep, that's how we did it when I was a kid, at least if you were being watched so closely that you couldn't roll one off into the napkin in your lap.

That tracks. When I was a kid, mom would just batter and deep fry all the veggies.

The tops of the letters ERI in AMERICA are missing. I used to have this problem casting lead soldiers, when the metal didn't quite fill the mould. This doesn't look like a struck coin.

The best way to get brussels sprouts down is to slice them thinly and fry them up with bacon.

I say counterfeit. I have one that belonged to my brother in law. It was graded by ANACS. That color looks off.

Best way to get Brussels sprouts down is a 3/4 HP garbage disposer.

Roll them sprouts in sesame seeds for a crunch with a nice chunk of tofu to back it up after a heavy beer night... guaranteed not staying down.

Yepp, definitely counterfeit, the points everyone touched on. St the right angle you can see where cast was tooled kinda wavy like you took the belt sander a bit to long in one spot on the hardwoods. I thought this was a spark erosion made and not cast by the extra metal flakes/cuds here and there...
Guess you can get simular issue casting. In any case, to the novice this coin would pass. The weight usually says yeah I'm real.
Not.
Thanks again everyone! Have some coins sending off to be graded, set of all three mint detached olive leaf 1922 peace vams in 64/65 and few early error Lincolns.
Have a great weekend!
