Just Carl - your post is exactly my concern and I believe every word of it.  I have a 1931-S Lincoln that I have concerns about too.  Not that it is worth any big bucks or anything but kinda fun checking and being suspicious.  I think that being aware of possibilities is my only defense so I will keep my wits about me.  thanks

Sorry to say it is not just counterfeiters that make fake coins. Way, way back when I was a kid we all thought it was fun to take a 1944D Cent and erase part of the 4 to make a 1914D. Naturally many kids erased the D on the 1922 cent as well. Brasing a piece of Copper on a cent to make it look like a mint error happened too. More ingenious kids did a lot more.

Just Carl:  I hear you, dude I went to high school with Mark Hoffman.  That dude sold many old Mormon document fakes before he about killed himself by blowing himself up.  In jail now where he belongs.  In high school he started by faking a 14-D cent.
