Bids are in excess of $110 for this obvious fake:

This piece appears to be rather special in that the forger got mixed up on the reverse and put the mintmark CM at the top by mistake (i.e. upside down !) but then put the mintmark and mintmaster initials in at the bottom correctly. The obverse is better done than the reverse; perhaps two different engravers were at work.
