Mushy details with a sharp, anemic date, this magnetic counterfeit is relatively easy to spot.


Note how anemic and thin the date is, despite it being so crisp in comparison to the rest of the coin’s details which are mushy and washed out.

All fakes of this variety also share the same die clash between the “RT” of “LIBERTY” on the obverse.
Although not pictured yet, all counterfeits of this variety also have a nearly an inch of their reeding overlapping. With some specimens it is a bit subtler than others due to slight differences in diameter and therefore where the overlap occurs, but it is there. Genuine Peace Dollars had their reeding added during the strike, rather than afterwards, and this overlap demonstrates that the reeding was done separately and that edge milling machine that did it was set to the wrong size to handle Peace Dollars.
