    Yes TallGuy. That's the same coin I have & in the same condition too. What I want to know is, what is its true condition & how much is it worth? Your pics do the coin much justice.

    your coin is gold plated, though a higher quality coin as you claim it to be, still not MS64 Luster or anything...

    Grading is very subjective and varies from person to person (some people think their run down, beat up Ford Pinto looks like a Cadillac).

    I paid $100 for her on eBay a while ago. I plan on using NGC to grade her.

    Let me know if you get yours graded.

    H$H!!

    Your coin is gold-plated. And it doesn't appear to be the type of plating they did 130 years ago. It would end up in a genuine slab. It's value is probably not as much as you're thinking, but it's still not a bad find out of a roll.

    Were there any fakes made today? The plating looks newer than 1883. I may be wrong about this and can be real.
    1/100 of an American dollar is a cent. It is NOT a penny. The word penny is used by several other countries, such as Great Britain, to denote their smallest denomination. In order to be numismatically correct, you must use the term cent to describe the American coin.

    It would be illegal to create a fake... V-Nicks are still legal tender. They take genuine pieces with issues (IE cleaning, corrosion, etc.) and plate them.

    That's what I meant.
