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.
