1914-D Lincoln Cent Struck Counterfeit

#1 Unread post by Daniel » Wed Oct 04, 2017 6:47 am

Here's images of a struck counterfeit 1914-D Lincoln Cent that came into the shop.

Key things to note is the mint mark is incorrect, no die mark, the coin's surface has lines from the die being rubbed to hide imperfections and the rim has issues. If one did't know the mint mark font of an authentic 1914-D then they would be easily fooled by this coin. The last image is the correct mint mark.

Wow. Great information. Thanks Daniel for the pointers.
Is the position of the MM correct (but the font is wrong).
How many die pair were used for this year?

The position seems alright but the font is wrong, the shape is not correct, and I think there's 6 die pairs.

Always like this simi key coin.
thanks for the info.
I had one that dealers thought was counterfeit because of the MM and the location just did not look right to them.
But it had the die crack connecting the bust to the rim. (at approx 5 o'clock) At the time ANACS was at at the show with a grader and he pointed this out and called it genuine. There is a good picture of that in PCGS "Official Guide to Coin Grading and Counterfeit Detection" Second Edition.
