Hey everyone. Anybody know where to find a decent looking centavo? The one I purchased from Tango just looks fake.

Is a coin dealership to obvious a solution?

Sorry! When people have incomplete profiles, it is hard to really provide help.

I agree here with Stanyon on this. People have tried to help in some simple enough ways on this. Gadfly, if you're listening even a little bit, you should have another Centavo by now. Just on your own, how difficult is it to simply type the words into Google for like a million leads on the subject? This is sorta like someone repeatedly asking if their Classic Palm is good enough after practicing it for only a few days. We're all here to help, and we have if you're even half awake and listening. This is a very, very small hurdle indeed. As a matter of fact, your question was answered a few days back now with the first few responses which were within minutes of your initial post.

The reason the ones sold from magic shops look so fake is that they are tossed into a polisher tub and blasted with sand usually... it gives them a rough, "odd plastic" look.

They are, in fact, real centavos (usually).

The best thing to do is get a few, put them outside for a week or two, and let them dull down - then, clean them up with a cloth. That will help A BIT.

After time, they will wear into what looks normal.

Thanks, I'll give that a try. I went to my local magic shop, and the owner showed me one that looked like someone found it under a rock. It was one of his own personal coins that he just used for display, and he didn't want to part with it. I just found a couple of antique shops that has coins I'm going to try. Thanks for your help, everyone.
