Fake 2 Annas?
« on: September 13, 2017, 08:31:18 PM »
Is this a cast fake? They weight at 4.47g seems pretty low.
Thanks!

4,47 g is very low - all of mine vary between 5,84 and 6,04 g (the heavier ones are the brass ones from the 1940s).

It might simply be a real one that has been corroded, possibly intentionally in something stronger than just the soil.
