Tibet, 5 Sho, BE 16-23/2, overdate
« on: July 09, 2017, 05:38:28 PM »
Overdate - a technique where the mint engraver superimposes one or more numbers over the date numbers of an earlier year's die and may be the resulting coins show traces of the old number.

Scarce overdate 5 Sho.
On die date 16-22, the last digit "2" was engraved at "3".

Convincing photos, Gusev, but puzzling. Usually, an overdate is a later date over an earlier one...

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

Sorry, but I wrote just like that. ???

Maybe I'm inaccurately formulated? You can offer your wording.
By the way, the overdate should be included in the WoC dictionary.
