I literally held my breath and started wondering who could play such a prank on me! Lol! Couldn’t think of anyone even smart enough so I started hoping!!
It would have been so much neater if it was real!! Lmao!
I’ve seen that before!! I remember reading an article last year about this guy finding his dad’s 1943 pennies and they were made with rare experimental planchets. If I’m correct, they were made mostly of tin but had a copper coating & they weighed in at 6.7 grams. So I was mostly hoping it was like that! Looks like I can sell it to my sister though!! She gifted me a fake coin for my birthday!!!
took it to the local expert who told him it was a ‘48S that somebody split the 8 to make the 3. He did say it was a nice counterfeit.
As for the copper 1943, even the most recent one that was "discovered"
was held in a family safe box for decades. So there really hasn't been any new discoveries for quite a long long time.
Love your sense of humor.
Pay Backs a bitch. I would love a sister like that
Not really considered a forgery. The base coin is authentic. It's just altered post minting in a way that wouldn't fool any buyers of the real thing . . . . .
I agree completely! It was a real 1943 SS Penny! Lol
