Tibet, 5 Sho, BE 16-24, recutting of the die
« on: January 06, 2018, 03:40:36 PM »
Interesting coin.
This marriage of coinage is called "Overstrike".
The rays around the moon appeared because of the marriage of the die.
The original die  with two suns (KM Y#28.1) was changed to a die with the moon and the sun (KM Y#28a).

I received the clarification:
"While overstruck coins do occur, in this case it is simply a recutting of the die".

I edited the title of the topic.
