I sold one on E-Bay and the guy swears it was a fake.
My camera is really cheap. I wish I could take pics through my stereoscope, they are really nice through it.
OOOOh Mercs ! Yeah, one say In CoD We Trust , or is it me ? Need better pics though , sorry .
Your pictures are too blury but the 1916 D i am certain is fake. The D mintmark on the reverse is completely wrong. And can be easily seen even with it being so blury. Its the same as the decent made fake ones you can buy off etsy for about $16 nowadays. Good enough to fool the unknowing but won't get past anyone that knows what to look for or even a moderate collector that doesnt want to get scammed on a big purchase. It's an easy diagnostic.
The common ones might be real and then whoever it came from used fakes to complete it for the tougher more expensive dates. You should hold the whole thing suspect as fake though until you sort it all out, the real from the fakes. One suspect coin, determined fake will damage your reputation if you try to pass it off as real. Even unknowingly.
Drop testing collectible silver coins is like using a wire brush to clean bird dew from your Corvette hood
There's a problem with using a wire brush????? what about comet or a brillo pad?
