    Is it true, do I have another fake in my collection?
    One of the reasons I am suspicious is because I found a fake 1916 D Mercury dime in the same lot this quarter came from.

    I looked up other 1932 Ds but don't have the eye to confirm either way, so once again I rely on the group, you guys are amazing... Thank you in advance!

    I see why you are wary. The wear on the oberse is quite bad when compared to the reverse. I did not see any deformation on the otherside of the "D". I just can not help, without haveing the coin in hand.

    No one assured you that the 16-D was fake. Even though it likely is, but.......

    I am far from an error expert, but I think I am seeing strike doubling on both the letters in the area of the MM and on the MM itself. I really doubt that can or would be incorporated in a counterfeit.

    The obverse wear is typical of a circulated 32-D, especially "In God We Trust". Almost every counterfeit example I've seen has "chattering" around a portion of the rim. There's always the possibility of an added mm, but there doesn't appear to be anything definitive in these photos to positively declare this coin fake.
