Nah man these guys i go to are the absolute real deal. Its genuine. Theyre sending it off to get graded so if it is cf (definitely not) well find out
We'll see. I'm just saying that there's more of this specific error on the market than ever made.
It is very difficult for counterfeiters to get the crossing of the doubled areas exact.
I can't tell on yours due to size.
First off that thing is absolutely beautiful. And yes theyre the same the one i saw was real they grade coins all the time and know how to detect counterfits. Man is that yours for sure?
From a total novice point of view (myself) , the one in the second pic looks the most fake out of the two. Lots of discrepancies. For example, in the second picture, the bottom part of the first set of double 5's look so much different compared to the same area on the second set of double 5's. Comparing both pix to each other, the 9's in the top pic look much different at the loop compared to the 9's in the bottom pic.
Also the quality of the strike on the coin in the second picture is much more lighter in appearance then compared to the coin in the first picture. The coin in the first picture has a very pronounced strike appearance.
If I were a betting person, I'd bet the first picture is of a genuine double 1955 and the second picture is of a fake.
As for the pieces in the OP, I really don’t care for a couple of them. Even if they are real, most of the survivors grade at least EF, and these pieces look kind of beat up.
The 1955 Doubled Die Cent is only scarce in red Uncirculated. Otherwise, it’s only a matter of money.
Theyre selling it for 8 or 10k i believe. And these guys know all about counterfitsi can promise yall its not one, just not in a good of condition as the other guys which is absolutely beautiful.
The numbers are in the right spot same spreading and number shape and also yeah. The old man had it since he was a kid. Its for sure real. Lone star coins dont mess around it might not be in perfect condition but boy is that one nice genuine coin.
Pieces graded AU-58 are priced at $1,550 on the Grey Sheet. You can expect to a bit more than that, but no where near the numbers you quoted. An MS-65 Brown is listed at $6,500. As I posted before, red ones are expensive.
NGC graded this one MS-62, Brown. I paid Choice AU money for it when I bought it many years ago. When these coins are damaged or cleaned, they are a bear to sell at a decent price.
Because its damaged buddy, alot. And those are my pictures that i edited to try and make it more clearer and increase the sharpness so yall could see it better. If you put them both together youd be able to see what i mean. Shouldve gotten better pictures. Its the deterioration which makes the numbers look off. But you should look up counterfit 1955 ddo. My boys at lone star go to coin auctions out of state once a week to sell coins hes in chicago now i believe. Overlooking a counterfeit as expensive as this one is literally impossible. No counterfeit wouldve gotten by these guys they're true professionals. I look up to them.
These are the non edited pictures.
Im not trying to but if you were to sell how much you think itd be worth? And what grade is it?
Wow really i thought they go for in the 10 grand range in any condition.. thats insane. Thanks for the info, so i guess theyre probably going to try and push the price up in the auction because it is a very rare and beautiful coin. If they dont make that 8 theyll be damn straight disappointed
This one is so bad, it's a joke, but I've seen the same counterfeit offered several times on the web as the real thing.
Yeah the date looks like it was glass blown. Look at honest abe smiling cause he knows damn well thats fake as ever
