Below is the fake 89-CC known as "Spitting Liberty", because of the die pit in the field near Liberty's mouth. It is one of a whole series of fake date/mint mark combinations that are all linked by the round "China 9" or 6 in the date. That sloppy font was never used by the US mint.

Here’s is the twister. The weight may be acceptable, and this example is not magnetic; also did the ice cube test and she passed. So right now I believe she has silver content, but the question is how much and what other materials.

The date is set just right of normal to possibly far. Numerical style is typical of Chinese’s counterfeits.

The 2nd and 3rd right stars show brush marks which is predominant all over the example and on both obverse and reverse.

There is a dot by right star 4 and what appears to be pitting on the rim side of right star 5 and 6.

Oh yes, I have seen this on an 1889-S example also.
