One of the most common counterfeits is the "added S mintmark". These often have the wrong serifs on the "S" -- they are not parallel like a real one's are. But there are so many different kinds of counterfeits out there for this coin, it could be a dozen different things to look for. I would recommend you check your local library or book store for a book about counterfeit coin detection.
