1866 Liberty Head Eagle replica

| user_17215

Hi,I was wondering if anybody knows why the first letter where is says Certificate Of Authenticity is misaligned with the first letter where it says Replica Archival Collection on this coins certificate. And why the Asterisks are misaligned too. Does this mean that this replica is a fake? Does the coin look real? If anybody has any ideas , please tell me.Thanks!

Sounds like the general consensus is poor quality control.

The slab only helped dress up something not worth much.

Probably originally Chinese origin, hence the poor quality control on the labeling. It is pretty but it is just a piece of worthless metal that will have no collector premium. I hope the cost was very modest.

Just enjoy your purchase. Either way it's fine... replica or fake...kinda the same thing as long as it is stamped.

The replica is "fake" , that is what a replica is. It is important to remember just because a certificate of authenticity exists doesn't mean anything, someone can just print one.

I don't know much about replicas, but I do know that if you replicate a replica of a coin, then the replica of the replica is still considered a replica because it replicates the design of the coin ;)

Either way it's a replica. Never heard of the company before but there are a ton of them. As long as you like the coin and didn't pay too much for it, relax and enjoy it.. Thanks.

I am not an expert in exposing fake coins, however this coin looks alright to me. I have had some misalignments in some of my certs. that I bought straight from the mint, so I wouldn't worry about it. In my experience, the mint has horrible quality control, and this isn't anything to worry about. Good eye, I'm impressed you noticed this. That level of observance will definitely come in handy in this hobby. Cheers, your fellow numismatist, NM

Do you mean like on the certificate or coin?

A fake replica might be possible if the replica is worth money. I would not worry about how the certificate is printed. A fake replica sounds like a fun collectible item. I doubt someone would fake a replica unless the replica coin is worth or selling for quite a bit. Like Mike said, contact the seller to find out where they got it. Research the company that made it. And search for more on Ebay and on the net.

Not a known Third Party Grader. It is accurately listed as a replica and is gold coated, not pure gold coin. This seems like a gotcha collectable. Worth it if you appreciate the replica as made, not so if you're looking for a solid original. Remember, "Buy what you like", so even having said all that, if you like it, it's worth it. It is a nice looking replica. Later!

Thanks for answering! So are you saying that the replica is real?

Well it's not an original. By law they have to tell you it's a replica. It's coated with good not all gold. You would have to contact who ever you bought it from.
