I'm assuming this is a contemporary counterfeit and not the real thing.
Contemporary Counterfeit or not?
Yeah, I don't like the way the numbers look (date or denomination); don't have the right "look" for a CBH. A little tough to tell for sure without the coin in hand though.3 years ago

Just a few of suggestions.
Just try to be careful. Dropping it may scratch or otherwise damage the coin.3 years ago
Hey everyone. I just returned from my local coin dealer and they confirmed that it's authentic. Also, it's definitely silver. They did give it a little bit of a drop on the counter and it made a beautiful ring sound so then they put it in a machine to test it and that came back positive. They said the only thing about it was that it had the crap cleaned out of it but otherwise seem to be an original.
Sweet! Glad to hear that.3 years ago
Congratulations however don't do the drop test. You can damage the coin. Let a professional do it and test it. You can put a nice Nick in it and the value will decrease. You did the right thing next time weigh it. counterfiters have a hard time getting the funny metal to match the mesurament in the red book. I have been luck. Never been stuxk. You will do well.
