I'm far from an expert and I've never seen one of these in person, but, based on the image below of a PCGS certified example, I'd say it's fake.

The give away to this fake is the reeded edge. These coins had edge inscriptions. A simple check of the Red Book of United States Coins reveals this. The Red Book is a bare bones needed resource if you want to collect coins. It is also inexpensive.

What is your problem? Look in a Red book or at any Capped Bust half site, or NGC's Coin Explorer. All will tell you the same thing: this coin is a fake. If you can't read well enough to see that for yourself, and you are purchasing coins like the OP's coin, you are in for a long, expensive trip.

Well, if he's paying a few bucks a piece for fakes like the OP it might not be all that terribly expensive - just as long as he doesn't pay "real" money.

It always amazes me when people pay $1-4 for a coin that, if real, would have a melt value of $12. Because people do no research and have no idea what they're buying.

To check the coin you must have it in your hand and use proper magnifier it might be undiscovered coin yet.

Paranoid and an optimist. Quite a combination, really.

Please, OUTCAST, buy that coin from the OP for $12. Give him $20, or even more, if you feel bad about ripping him off.
