    Pine tree coin 1652 real or fake

    So I'm cleaning this house out with my ten year old son. We are in the basement and my son finds a boxes with some coins in it. I look in the box and there is a pine tree coin. I know from being on TNet.com a little about them. Now I'm not sure if its real or not, if I found it in the ground I'd be pretty sure it was real. He are some pics of it. If its real he wants half!! Lol

    From what I've read it appears too close to being round, where originals are usually more irregular.
    However, I'm no specialist.
    But what is the thickness of the coin, in millimeters if possible?

    There are several different strikes, small planchet and large planchet, different sizes and thickness of genuine 1652 Pine Tree coins, they were minted for numerous years and all with the same date, get it to several experts and then if they think it maybe real then send it in to get it graded, if your coin is real it's in very good condition and would be worth a tidy sum, and you will get the best price for a graded coin!!!

    I was thinking that as well, but I have seen pictures of genuine coins that looked similar in pictures so I wasn't going to say it looked cast without seeing better pictures

    The edge, lack of sharpness to the lettering, and experience. I do this for a living so buying hammered coins just from a picture is a very common experience for me.... so I quite easily recognize the suspect ones. If I don't it costs me money, or at least a hassle.

    If I remember right, there were some cast ones made in the 60's or 70's.
    My father had one.
    When it comes to detecting, you will always find me "out standing in the field".
