    I got a bunch of well made ‘fake’ coins that weigh, look and sound exactly the same as real morgans. they are also not attracted to magnets since they are also silver. Really nice for collecting, i bought 4 of them.

    imagine how many are out there

    But specific gravity is a dead give away for silver. Not for gold. But I guess if you ask a tech geek if doing that work is hard, you’re going to say “no.”

    I have all the testing methods; acid, digital scale, measurement calipers & neodynium rare earth magnets and use most on every new silver coin I get, that are the type that might get forged by China or and other country.
    Specific gravity is too much work and not necessary.
    Any Sterling jewelry gets the acid test.

    I’ve got a video up that’s pretty definitive for discerning fake vs real with 3 tests. Weights, details, specific gravity (which can be done with digital scales). And if you want to see what the wrath of being delivered a fake to me is, I also destroyed a fake kook from ebay.

    Throwing these around doesn’t show us visual proof of what makes them fake.
    How about melting off the plating with some acid on half of these fakes by simply dipping them into the acid so you will always see the base metal on just half of both sides.

    The coins are from Afghanistan and you are saying they are made in China? LOL Someone seriously hates China for no reason.

    Will not eat b eating dim sum for awhile. This is not cool.

    The problem with doing that is someone might buy it at $3-$5 then sell it back to an inexperienced buyer at an inflated price. Wouldn’t want to see fellow silver stackers get ripped off.

    I don’t think it’s anything as malevolent as envy of our culture. The Chinese generally just like to make money and have no qualms about making cheap imitations to do it.

    Well that’s not good. Those communists. It truly seems to me that China is envious of our lifestyle and culture. Faking our cars (ford) and our money, and countless other things. I just can’t trust them

    Drill them full of holes.

  15. Rodger Wilson says:

    What is the weight?

  16. UnitedStatesOfClad says:

    why destroy them? put them on ebay as “replica coins” and you could fetch like 3-5$ per coin!

    that mercury dime is obviously real.
