    Liberty dollar, I still have a few. Poor guy was targeted by the FEDS, they don't like competition.

    Me too, also i have a few. But wasn't he or another guy counterfeiting these. Or was the government being angry.

    Test the coins to see PM content. If they are what the face says, they are no more counterfeit than any other "silver round" being sold today.

    The feds were pissed because they LOOK similar to U.S. coinage, they convicted him of counterfeiting. 6 mos house arrest and 3 yrs probation. Much of the argument was over "legal tender" which I find ignorant.
    Tender means exchange, barter is legal, so exchanging a silver round is legal.
    Just Government showing the peeps who is in charge.

    Silver round, looks like a Morgan dollar to me. How come this is not considered counterfeit?

    Good point. The dollar amount is never the value of the precious metals.
