Amazing error strike on 10 cash Kwangtung
« on: July 29, 2015, 01:06:11 AM »
Hello
Among my "error coins" I got one that is quite strange
It is a "ten cash" from Kwangtung province that seems to have been stroke between other coins and the result is incuse letters and design but not reverse as usual.

Here picture of that coin with the normal strike to compare
Weight of the error coin is 5.13g normal coin is 7.16g

I think it is a "seed coin" for casting contemporary forgeries.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Hi Peter,

"seed coin" is not in the terms file :-X
