I came across this 1853 gold dollar on internet.
All the info I have is the picture. The seller said its real. But I don't know, i have doubts. the rim looks strange for me.

Fake. There are many other signs, but the clearest is that the letters in the word DOLLAR are very badly aligned. Compare with original.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Another one of the many signs of → the working surface of the stamp can not create bumps on the blue arrows.

great, so i'm not going to buy this coin. it was on sale for really low price (under 60€) but I was really not sure. The "dollar" letters, i have seen that to and was wondering also, but its clear now.

Another example of forgery, burly metal around the periphery of the obverse and reverse.
