1851 Fake USA Silver Dollar - Obverse

Possibly better described as a fantasy piece, but I believe this and other similar creations are often sold on eBay and other sites, by small amateur dealers who routinely fail to disclose the fact that they are not real genuine original coins, and bought by simpletons who are hoping they have just acquired a colossal bargain and great rarity at an unbelievably low bargain price. A classic combination of greed and stupidity!
