These I believe are real.
These two look too good to be true.

No B/S/T offers in forum posts. The others all look real, too, but several/most are not worth grading.
The Chinese have counterfeited the 1958 Wheat Cent. I can't think of anything that would more inane to counterfeit than that. They have a value of 2 to 4 cents in circulated condition.
I stand corrected.
I was hoping to find that here
My two 1869s appear slightly different from each other, but as they are both worn more than @FoundinTN 's photo, I cannot say decisively whether my own are fakes or not. What piques my interest, though, would be the prospect of owning an ersatz IHC that was not an 1877 of 1909-S.
I wonder how many of mine might actually be fakes since it has been brought up that even common dates were faked.
You can see in the first photo many coins have been cleaned. When you have an
old worn copper coin, and it shows orange or other bright spots.
I.E. the 1902 and the one directly below it. But some of the others as well.
My apologies, BOTH the 1869 & 1867 are questionable.
I can't find my Indian reference right now,
But.. both dates are not correct, but I could be wrong-- just ask my wife.
The 1 and the 7 are exaggerated and 6 looks wrong.
Yes, both the 67 and 69 should be from the shallow hub. There are many Chinese fakes around,not just the keys. I have a 1909 and 1909 s, and a 1885, all fakes.Here are pics of the 1885 fake and a real 1885 and 1869. Notice the similarity in the shape of the date on the 1885, 1867, 1869 fakes.
