I disagree that the images of the obverse of the Feuchtwanger three-cent pieces are of the same coin. Granted, some of the appearance of the piece on the left could be artifacts of the digitization process, but I see many features of the images that do not match, and very few that seem to be matches. I await the comparison with a plated catalog.
Dan Hamelberg has a plated Stickney catalog. He writes:
In checking the Stickney Sale for the cent image, the image in the plated catalog is not entirely clear, but I think in comparison to the image in The E-Sylum, the marks and porosity in the fields of the coin sort of match up.
The catalog image is really not much better than the one in The E-Sylum. This is why it is somewhat difficult to tell beyond a doubt that it is the same coin. I am not sure if it is absolutely conclusive, but I think it is close.
