1871 Standing Liberty Dollar with Rotated Reverse

Post by Fjor » Sun, 18 Dec 2005 19:39:19



Hello folks!

I recently purchased a circulated 1871 Seated Lib. Dollar off of ebay,
I receive the item and drop it in the ol' dansco only to realize that
it has a "medal" orientation.  The reverse has the same orientation as
the obverse, maybe rotated 5-10 o'clock relative to the obverse.

Do known examples of this exist?  Any advice on how to authenticate
this coin short of slabbing?

Thanks,

Sounds like its a phony.

Check the weight against a Morgan dollar.
Should be the same.

Did it by any chance come from China?

Well, no, but I don't know where the seller purchased it from.

What makes you say that, the look of it, or the improbably die rotation?

It is my experience that strange die rotations are
common for coins of this period.  I have the red
book out and I am looking at your coin.  I am no
expert, but I too would like to know what marker
shows this to be a fake?

What is that strange shadowing effect around the
head?

The sad thing about arguing on usenet is that
even if you "win" you'll still be a moron.

Either learn to use a killfile, ignore the
other idiot, or both.
