    I've been offered this Fatman dollar. Its non-magnetic and weighs 24.05 grams.
    The face looks a bit softly struck, but that could just be the photo.

    What does everyone think? I know this is a popular and heavily counterfeited type.

    Ah, I see. Thank you. In comparing yours with the Numista link you provided, they are not the same... or am I missing something?

    Oh wait, I think I know why. Yours is Year 3. The numista example is Year 9. OK.

    Looks very suspicious to me.

    definitely fake. Details are way to mushy.

    Ugly coin even if it is real, which makes passing it up a no brainer.

    Technical weight is meant to be 26.7g if I recall correctly. Definitely underweight and not genuine.
