2013 AOCS Ghost Money 1 Ounce Silver Round

Notable Differences

  1. The counterfeit round has a more defined hair line and the hair is relieved higher than the forehead, where the forehead is of higher relief than the hair on the genuine round.
  2. The field is proof-like on the counterfeit round on both the obverse and reverse.  The regular issue genuine round is matte finished across the entire round.
  3. The triangle nearly touches the "E" in RESTORE, the second "P" in OPPOSE, and the second "N" in TYRANNY on the counterfeit round, where there is a noticeable gap between these letters and the triangle on the genuine round.  The contour along the bottom of the eye also stops short on the counterfeit round, where it continues further left and blends into the triangle on the genuine round.

Discussion & Detection

This is a lesser known piece and may be difficult to identify without a genuine example in hand or the above comparison image.  The counterfeit is slightly under weight, however our genuine sample was also slightly under weight.
