Maybe we need a new category on this site called "Fakes" or "Forgeries".
Its hard to tell what Category we should go to, to discuss fakes?

And maybe a category named Miscellaneous, to cover all remaining general topics, or points of interest.

"Fakes and Forgeries" is added. Thanks for the suggestion!

Okay, here's a fake--the finest known counterfeit 1846 cent of the variety discussed in the new Grellman book. 359360361

And here's one for the misc. section--I think it's a counterfeit but RCB says pickle barrel cent. Look at the tongue and the date spacing. 362363 This planchet is smaller and as thin as a dime.

I bought this coin on eBay shortly after I joined EAC. I knew enough about varieties, especially my favorite date, that I thought I may have discovered a new variety. Ha - Chinese counterfeit.
