Nearly no detail at all on this fake. The date is consistently hard to read, and there is a die scratch right below the first 8. Additionally, the denticles are missing in places, there is a die scratch right through Liberty’s left arm, another die gouge in the west field, and Liberty’s right shoulder is all but missing.

Again, sparse on detail, the biggest tipoff visually are the poor denticles and misshapen devices.
