Thought better, but could I have been wrong?
Sold on Ebay yesterday for $380. I wondered about the pitting first off. Was this environmental damage? I did a little research on this coin and it being struck in pewter, and the others that I did see that did have environmental damage did not look like this.Also, I did ask if there was writing on the side...or the word copy, and the seller said no. But is there a different type of environmental damage that could have caused this? A few years back, I did buy a 1943 copper off Ebay...it was copper, but counterfeit. Always nice to give the secret service a call to pick up a penny and Ebay to withdrawal the funds back from the seller!
