1909 S Indian Head cent, real or fake?

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased this coin on ebay and am suspicious about it. I took it to two coin shops and asked them to check it out. One told me he is certain its real and the other said he is 80% sure its real. I'm still skeptical. The S doesn't look quite right to me and it's obviously been cleaned, which may have been done to hide the imperfections of an added S. Hopefully some of you here have a better eye than me for this. I'd like to hear your opinions. I was having problems adding the photos, so I hope the link works. Thanks.

Sorry. I wouldn't guess either way based on the pictures. An added "S" can be extremely difficult to detect. High magnification might help but I'm not sure on that one.

Are they certain enough in its authenticity to make an offer? If they are, then it might very well be real.
