Do your homework BEFORE you look, and I think you will be happier with the results.
What do you mean? How do you educate yourself before every coin purchase?
I think @Millard answered your question. Good luck.
Fully manufactured fakes are not out of the realm. The Chinese did make a 1958 cent, which is like a thumb to eye. Why did they bother?
@buddy16cat - I don't know if this helps as a reference, but I'm guessing that I probably paid around $200 for this.
The key is to do your research and be patient. I've been looking for the 1877 IHC for more than a year. With the price hovering sometimes between $2,000 and $3,000, if I spent that much on a "penny", my wife would kill me and then get off scott free.
I’ve spent that or more in a single purchase. My wife says “That’s fine dear. You know I’m spending them all at face value when you die.” Lol At least I know she’s joking as she’s not that stupid.
