    Hi Folks,

    My name is Beanpole and I will cut to the chase. I recently received this Continental Currency coin from a older uncle in a box of items for my birthday and am not sure if it is a copy or not. It is the version with the one r in the word in Curency and there is no seams on the coin or the word copy does not appear on the coin. I would appreciate any help on identifying this coin and thanks in advance.

    Kind Regards, Beanpole image.jpg

    Hey, welcome to CoinTalk, I'm sure someone here can help you. It will help to have a picture of the other side and a weight (if possible).

    Looks grainy and weakly struck; I'm not confirming anything but I personally think it's not authentic as this is one of the most heavily faked US coins.

    Unfortunately this is one of the many souvenir type copies. Most likely made before the "copy" stamp was required by law.

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    Sorry, but you have a cast copy.

    Unquestionably a cast counterfeit. Worth a couple of dollars as a novelty. The grainy surfaces and lack of details give it away.
