Counterfeit Detection: 1840 and 1857 Large Cents

2 posts in this topic

We have one we call a barrel cent dad found out how it was made in the Library in a book on early American counterfeits its smaller then a large cent. No worries we got are coin buy the pound for the price of copper so we didn't get scammed or any thing it was super cheap and no guarantee on authenticity since the deal was all copper we even got a flying eagle token a real big one. I believe the token is a modern belt buckle token from Levi's.
