    So while I was sorting through rusty iron and smashed beer cans Tim found a WHAT?!? Bravo my woods master hunter ELITE! Whether or not it's authentic upon recovery NO ONE can take this HELL of a JOY RIDE away from you buddy! I think I'd be scared to touch the thing if it was in my hands. Looking forward to the final chapter of this coins authentication. Banner well deserved. SWEET!!!

    Thanks for all the input! Let's hope the next time I find a rare coin there's no counterfeit to deal with! All this info about the difference between the real one and the counterfeit is giving me a headache!

    P.S. Looks like we got at least 16 inches of snow here in Scituate. Going to be awhile before I can go back to woods!

    The real deal is not thin like a dime and yours appears to be very light in weight.
    Maybe not as thin as a dime, but not thick like an 1850's LC. I've found quite a few wheaties that were corroded and paper thin, so I don't think that's a good judge of it's authenticity.

    Here's a few Wheaties I've found. As you can see, some are very thin and way underweight. I put an undamaged wheatie on each end to show you the difference in thickness. And these were in the ground for less than 100 years. Just my take on it...

    This must be a good find if BuckleBoy's impressed! Man, I feel really stupid that I didn't appreciate this coin when I found it. Just didn't look like a coin or a token to me at the time. I did recognize the USA logo as being Rev War era, though, so I'm not a total idiot! LOL!
