    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    That was my response as soon as I saw the title of the thread. lol. Been there done that, didn't cost me but a buck or two either though. Couple of Codd's and a cobalt Brookfield baby face cream top Milk. For the price though, I still made money, even as fakes.

    That's why I bought the one's I bought. Nothing wrong with that. Is it the one with the eagle that has a trefoil (radiation warning symbol) hanging from it's beak? If so it's a repro or at least it's not old, put it that way. That symbol wasn't invented until the late 40's, early 50's. Here is the only example of a real one I could find -

    Is there a thread on the forum with common reproductions? I have one of these as well ---- and unfortunately I paid a lot more than $2.00 for it.

    I don't think so. But maybe we should start one on the bottles and glass forum. There are many fakes nowadays of just about everything.

    My girlfriend has fakes, but they're a real improvement over the originals, despite the cost.
