1776 continental currency coin.

1776 continental currency.  Real or fake. Found the R on the front by 1776. Currency only spelled with 1 R.  Weight 19 grams. We are one American Congress on back, with 13 circles. This is my 97 year old Grandmother's! 

Thank you!

Carrie

  • Here is a picture of a real one:

     

    Can you see how the inscriptions and pattern are sharp and clear? This is not the case on your specimen because it is made from a casting. Genuine continental currency is struck by hard metal dies under high pressure. Fakes are cast. Sorry, yours is not genuine.
