You posted an 1887-O. Not much use when you are trying to scrutinise the OP of an 1885-CC. Different mint, different dies, different date
Doesn't matter... they're still the same coin in essence...
Discrimination comes from noticing the details and educating yourself about mintages, rarities and grades of the coins. If they were all the same in essence they would all have the exact same value and why would we collect them?
Here is an example of the real thing.
After comparing the lettering on both sides with my coin(below) I'm convinced it's a fake. All sorts of problems with the lettering, which looks fat and bloated, among other things.
Did you click on the small photos? They get real big if you do.
Yes I did, but thanks for the suggestion. I just like them bigger. Old age, I guess.
Beautiful and amazing coin. Seems my t's do not match and my c's don't either.
Yes, and I have 2 microscopes to help me.
No, the same type. And not an authentic coin.
Not a real coin, sorry.
The reverse denticles are more like dots on the posted coin, while they are more rectangular on authentic morgans. The denticles and mm are the first places I look on these.
You always have to remember that you will get opinions (and free ones at that) on CT, and very new inexperienced members will chime in as well as people who know what they are talking about (don't include me, I've learned...).
