Re: Two more fake double-struck 1960-D cents
- The 1960-D and 1963 fake multi-strikes are relatively obvious fakes.
The blending of "first" and "second-strike" design elements is a dead
giveway. A genuine double-strike will show sharp but incomplete
penetration of first-strike design elements through overlapping
second-strike design elements.
There are numerous other red flags, such as the equal strength of the
two "earlier strikes" on the 1960-D cent.
