    Ya know I could kick myself for scratching the coin..but ya know what I won't. I'm proud of the find and I'll take it anyway. It's the best coin I have ever found and a few scratches won't get me down.

    That's a cool find no matter what.

    eBay (of all places) has a useful page about detecting fake trade dollars. It's at eBay Guides - Coin Fake Detection - Valid Trade Dollar Types

    Scroll down to the text "Now, apply what you just learned. Is this coin a fake?" Check out, inter alia, where the arrows end. I'm not much of a rare coin guy so I'll let you make the call. What I can say is that I wish I'd known this before I brought home three fakes from Vietnam. I've seen at least two others since then. Worst case, you've found a very interesting addition to your display or collection and you paid a lot less than I did.

    Can't you type a sentence without a subjective of a curse word? ( Found today a seated dollar.)
