    Ok, that makes sense.. I was so mad when I dug it! lol, I yelled over at my partner "hey man, just got a seated quarter!!" when i started cleaning it up, well, it never would clean up I kept thinking 'what the hell is wrong with this coin??' Thanks IP

    That will prepare you for the gold one should it happen, seen plenty posted over the years. I like counterfeits but mostly the older stuff. As I said I think it's a better find than just an average dug seated.
    That's what my somebody told me once when I showed em, he thought it was a ctft.. and Im starting to come around to the idea... ya, its not silver but really how many ctft seated quarters do you see posted on here?? Ive never seen one.. thanks again for your time and help .. appreciated IP Jeff
    I'm definately guilty of not regarding them as anything significant..
    Some are, but most I think interesting is probably a better word.
    itd be real interesting if it was worth a couple grand

    As a matter of fact I sold a counterfeit halfpenny for that amout. It wasn't my find, but I was the one cashing the check.

    lol, im not even gonna ask how u pulled that off

    It was a rare one and bought by an expert. I ain't that sweet a talker!
    im sure ur a sweet talker, but i was confused as to how you ended up bein the one cashin the chek if it wasnt ur find... Luckyyyy (napoleon dynamite style)

    Re: Counterfeit 1858 seated liberty quarter?

    This is a good find--and a rarer find than a real Seated Quarter. A good, old counterfeit can be worth the same amount as a real dug coin. There are folks that collect period counterfeits.

    It would occupy a proud place in my collection anyday.

    IP and BB.. theoretically speaking, If I ever tried to sell this coin.. Where would be a good place to start in my search for a collector of period counterfeits?

    Not worth selling. Halfpenny/ Farthing, reales, and French billon is more where the interest is for countefeits, and of course probably a few more exceptions. Even most counterfiet halfpennies, farthings, and reales, have very little interest to a serious collector. All about rarity and condition just like every other type of coin.

    What makes a counterfeit good is basically the history of the dies used and a lot of effort is put into understanding this. (Halfpenny is at the top) It basically boils down wanting to know what circulated in American Colonies. Something like a counterfeit seated there was probably a lot less counterfeiting at the time making it less interesting to study and trace or match different dies. (possible they do, really have no idea)

    Re: Counterfeit 1858 seated liberty quarter?

    I have never seen a counterfeit coin but I have seen a barber dime that looked just like that. When I found it, it was black and crusty just like yours. I could make out part of the one dime on the back so I thought well it is not worth anything like this. I hooked it up to my electrolyse and was amazed at how it cleaned up. It is worn but you can see all of the detail including the date.
