A friend sent me a couple pics of a 1922 LWC he was contemplating purchasing & asked for my opinion. Unfortunately, identifying real vs fake coins, is not my expertise & am in need of help from the pros, the second 2 in 192(2)does not look correct to me, tia.

This does not match any of the generally accepted die pairs for this issue.

This does not appear genuine.

The only die pairing with a strong reverse is Die Pair 2
and that is wrong Die pair 2 Obverse.

Coming in late. Yes, doesn't appear to be legit.

Not genuine, IMHO.

Because if this were a legit 1922-D with no mintmark it most likely would be in uncirculated or close to it grade and therefore be a highly valuable coin. It also does indeed appear that the last 2 in the date looks to have been altered from a 1928 cent because there is what appears to be a trace of an 8 digit below that last 2, and the top of the 2 may very well have been the top of the 8... That is what my eyes say, altered from 1928
