bradleymxz Posted February 5, 2010 Report Share Posted February 5, 2010 Hello. This is my first post. I've been collecting coins for quite sometime and I came across an ad on craigslist. The guy was looking to buy wheat pennies. Fair enough. So we emailed back and forth....I told him I had about 320 wheat pennies, of random dates, mostly 1930s,40s,and 50s. He said hed give me 6 cents each, or about 20 bucks.....he doesnt have much cash but would trade for junk silver coins....and we agreed upon 7 pre 1965 quarters. So he sent me 3 barbers and 4 washingtons. I got them today and they just don't look right. If they are fake, they are DAMN good fakes. They ting like silver...they look like silver....i put a match against one and it reacted to the sulfur. I cut it open and it looks kinda shiny-aluminum like. The thing is...i scraped them aaginst a white piece of paper and they are leaving pretty dark-pencil like marks.... i will post a picture. I don't have a scale but will buy one soon. thanks for any help Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
