1844 Seated Liberty - It is genuine?

#1 Unread post by realkref » Fri Mar 20, 2020 2:39 pm

Hi everyone, I picked up this Seated Liberty Half dollar, but not sure it's genuine. Seems to pass the eye tests and not have obvious (to me anyway) signs that it's a sure counterfeit.

That said, the coin has several marks that I would otherwise assume are die marks, but lead me to question it. I've included pictures of both sides, but I'm definitely not the lighting champ so can post new ones if needed.

Thanks in advance for any guidance you can provide.

Need better images that are larger and the empty space cropped from around the coin.

Man I'm horrible at editing, but I've tried to get a closer pic. The shot was also taken through Magnifier. I'll try again if needed.

Images are too small but looks fake.
