I don't know anything about late dates, but it looks like the date is really askew compared
to the others I've seen, but then again, it could be because it's a specific die. Any help out there?
I checked the Grellman book, this one doesn't match the date possition known for N1 (the large date '57) Note the 1 punches into the bust, 8 is too far left and the 5 is the wrong shape. Good eyes, Charles !

Looks like the date is really skewed, but that might be one particular die....I'm definitely not a
late date guy. Several of the others don't seem to have that down-sloping date. Any help
from some late date guy?
There is anther bad 1857 large cent large date, up on ebay right now it have 4 days left on it. Can you find it and what the most out standing thing on this one that give it away as a fake. This should be a easy one to find.
