    Had a handful of coins arrive from eBay today. Mostly foreign and a handful of US. Below are pictures of the 1924-D Lincoln I purchased. Overall it’s in nice condition but something about looks off to me. Maybe it’s that it’s in better condition than the other ‘24-D’s I own. Maybe the surface is different. Maybe nothing at all. Interested in any thoughts at all.

    Also throwing in a picture of a 1867 Shield nickel with a very cool die crack / retained cud.

    Appreciate any thoughts you guys have. Thanks.

    The Lincoln looks way off. Compare the 2 and 4 positions on your coin and mine. Also compare the difference in the M’s of UNUM in both coins. There are undoubtedly many more things to point out. These two immediately stood out.

    Abe looks like he's soaking into the surface of the coin.

    Also, look at that bump on the right side of the left wheat stalk, and compare it to the images here. Looks like this die (hub?) has been cranking out fakes since at least 2016.

    Looks like a fake to me.

    Thanks everyone, I thought it looked fake as well. I bought it as part of a larger lot and wasn’t paying close enough attention.
