Tibet, 5 Sho, an amazing buyer mistake
« on: May 07, 2017, 05:25:02 PM »
Top photo:
Tibet, 5 Sho, KM Y#28.1, BE 16-52 (1948 AD)
eBay, 06.05.2017, Sold $ 224.5. :o
It is a simple coin of Tibet, but it was sold for a very high price. The usual price of such coins is $ 15-25.

Bottom photo:
Tibet, 5 Sho, KM Y#28.2, BE 16-52 (1948 AD). Cloud above middle mountain missing.
This is a scarce coin.

The unhappy buyer made a big mistake.

Can you advise me as to the variety and date of my coin Gusev?  I have it ticketed as 1948, no dot after 16 ?
