Misc: Fake: Genuine mint error or a sanwith job
« on: April 06, 2017, 07:10:15 PM »
Just now I found an unusual double strike coin sold in eBay in auction format and was sold at 300 rs.

This coin had a normal reverse on one face. Its other face shows both a normal and a brockage image of the obverse.

Unable to think how such an error can technically be created in a mint. So I need the help of my expert friends about how this type of error is created in the mint.

I apprehend it to a sqeeze job made by a forgery expert to dupe the novice error coin collectors.

Views of the error expert friends of this group is invited. Thank u all. Waiting for ur comments.

The same seller also sells many 10 rs Bi-meta coins in eBay with similar type of errors.

The ebay link of the seller is given below for ur reference. ERROR-COIN-EXTREMELY-RARE-5-/282419803913? hash=item41c1883709:g:baEAAOSwdGFY4mHb
