Norway: 1 krone 1982K, km462, variant with ring
« on: May 02, 2017, 05:50:56 PM »
Hej,

I'm not sure if this is a variant or just a manipulated coin! How could a manipulation be so regular?

Could it be from packing it into a paper roll?

Thanks for helping me figuring it out.

Is the extra ring incuse or en relief?

I think it's incuse, but it's difficult to see and passing a toothpick over it doesn't help determing the matter.... but seeing the indents on the cross and the mint mark I would say incuse!

In that case, from the fact that the ring runs over the cross and the K you may deduce that it happened after the coin was struck.

I've seen similar rings on other coins and I was always told this happened when the coins are put into a paper roll by machine.

I also found this thread on another forum where they conclude the same: https://www.coincommunity.com/forum/topic.asp?topic_id=263594

I've seen similar rings on Swedish coins, which are also packed in paper rolls (rather than polythene bags, as UK coins come in).
