Question
coin pattern
coin pattern  

coin pattern
coin pattern  
just want any information, for authenticating, this piece

Answer
I am not aware of a pattern for this year and Mint Mark.  I believe this is a modern reproduction.  You may want to check the weight, a normal coin for this year and mint should have a weight of 33.4 grams and a diameter of 34mm. The coin surface does not have the look of a coin struck in the 1850's.  Hope this helps.  Thanks, Troy
