Newbe to the boards, Penny pitstop. 

The die marks that authenticate  the 1955 seem to be missing from the authentic coin. Do they vary at all?  What are all the other obvious marks or divits in the coin? and will they all be the same as well?

Nice article. There does seem to be a wrong word at the end of the first paragraph ->The extreme doubling seen on the reverse is unparalleled on any other US coin.

That thing was just laughable.....I think that was the most pathetic properly dated fake coin I've ever seen.  However, my favorite fake of all time was the time I saw a 2009 dated U.S. Trade Dollar.  I about wet myself over that sucker!
