I have this alleged 1914-D penny. It has definitely been roughly cleaned and that leads me to think it might be a counterfeit. Your input would be greatly appreciated.

I'll say genuine but obverse appears cleaned in these images.

Also looks correct to me, but cleaned/tooled. Looks to me as if someone tried to remove a scratch or graffiti from the head. Remaining devices, especially on the reverse are sharper than the jaw, cheek, and temple area. Area looks to still have some residual deep scratches and looks slightly concave.

Obverse makes it looks like a VG Details, but had it not been modified (if this is the case), it looks like a Fine Details genuine coin to me

Can't see Fine with that slab cheek, so I'll say VG details.

Thank you all. I'm just glad you all think its genuine! The coin is definitely rough and so shiny I can't even take good pictures of it. But if it's genuine I'm not complaining. I bought 50.00 dollars of wheat pennies in a bank bag and this coin and a 1931-s were both in it. I think I came out way ahead!
