    Thanks, guys! Not sure if it's the real deal, but hard to imagine an 1860 counterfeit at this spot. Why did they counterfeit it back then anyway? Was it rare even back in 1860? I would think they did it to con coin collectors and not just release them to the general public. I'll have to dig deeper into the history of this coin...

The condition of this find is consistent with that of most copper and brass items I find that date from the 1700's and early 1800's, which makes me doubt that it is a reproduction from the late 1800's or early 1900's. You have the find of a lifetime right there!
    Coinman123 - Well stated. There's no reason to doubt that this Bar Cent is genuine. Here's a link for auction results on a Bar Cent from just a few months ago.

    I imagine the age of the coin would change the weight due to condition but I would have to weigh it for grins. Regardless it is a super rare dug coin.

    It weighs 4.62 grams, which is quite a bit less than the 5.44 grams an undug example would weigh. But it is also very thin, probably as thin as a dime.

    I really hope its the real deal.

    But sadly I'm going to be the only one to say, take it slow & take it to an expert. I'm a little worried about the bar side, they don't line up the same as the sold examples. There maybe a reason because I'm not familiar with this coin.

    FINGERS CROSSED!!!
