    Weird - and that sucks if its not real.

    Maybe chocolate inside? (looking for the "silver" lining)

    I dug a fake Barber Half that looks very similar to yours. Appears to be pewter, with some form of silver plating/wash? on the surface. Almost happier that I dug the fake rather then a real one. (Far left of the photo)

    Re: A bogus dollar?

    Curbdigger...are you sure that barber isn't real? I found one like it once, and had to use electrolysis to get the crud to pop off, but it was real. It looked even worse than yours with the bubbly crud buildup on it.
