    A famous Piacentile/Sheiner altered 1964 obverse double struck, and a counterfeit 1939 Henning Nickel.

    In Both cases, the producers of them spent time in jail.

    Thanks, @Insider !

    This is really cool. The Henning nickel has a really fascinating backstory. It's one of the few counterfeits I would add to my collection. Thanks for sharing.

    Interesting that a TPG would assign a grade to a counterfeit coin...

    Love the Henning Nickel. People on a daily basis look for counterfeit paper money(yes I know it's obviously has more value to do so) daily but we don't turn a blind eye to any coinage that changes hands.

    I have never heard of a counterfeit 1964 cent, how do tell if it’s fake? Is it weight, size or metal composition? It can’t be because it’s doubled. I have read a lot about Henning nickels and have seen examples but the cent; that’s a new one on me.
    Any information would be appreciated, thanks

    ICG and ANACS will do this but not NGC nor PCGS

    It’s interesting that the producers of these coins went to jail. If only that could happen to the domestic sellers of Chinese counterfeits today.

    I am very interested in the Piacentile/Sheiner 1964. How did you find it? How much might I expect to pay for one?

    Not to my knowledge. IIRC, only ICG will.

    Speaking of counterfeits, I would definitely call the Henning nickel a counterfeit, because it was intended be used in commerce, not to fool collectors. The 1964 double strike, I would consider more of a forgery than a counterfeit. It's still a genuine coin; it's just that the error is faked.

    I realize this was back in May:

    The coins they started with were real. They are not fake coins.
    They were altered to appear double struck.

    A dealer friend had one. He only sold it to me knowing I wasn't going to sell it AND I am doing research for a book.

    As far as price, numbers could be all over the place. I woyld say at least $50, but dont be surprised if it is well over $100 or more.

    Yes, the Henning is counterfeit.

    The Piacentile/Sheiner cent is altered.
