I'm rather guessing that this is a brockage rupee. Anyone have a firmer idea?

I want to own more medals than a four star general. Give generously

It's a brockage, but you'd better weigh it and compare it to a normal rupee of the same period to establish its authenticity. These sorts of errors are easily faked.

What's the other side look like? Does it look "normal"?

Shouldn't this side of a brockage be incuse? The bust detail appears to be in high relief.

It is incuse, the letters are mirror imaged. I've seen several brockages from this era so I imagine it is a real one. A picture of the other side would be nice.

Very nice......Can you post a picture of the other side..

I was checking into the India Mint, there are 4 run by the government and there are some neat error coins from there...makes me wonder if employees sneak some out....

Certainly the mirror image on the Victorian coin shown here looks genuine.

That's a very fair question that the other side of the coin should also be examined closely. The reason for this is that if it were done if the coin was struck with another coin on top of it in a backyard operation, the opposite side of the coin would show some signs of distress.

A genuine mint error should show a perfectly normal opposite side of the coin.

This is how she looks, and she's seen some circulation; as always seems to be the case with Indian errors.

What I notice here and just about every other authenticated mirror brockage rupee I've seen is that there is no reeding inside the rim on the error side. I have brockage rupee coins on the way that have solid strikes on both sides but have reeding inside the rim. Please let me know your thoughts. Would be MUCH appreciated.

Presence or absence of rim beading would depend, I would think, on the pressure of the dies applied and the hardness of the matrix coin. I wouldn't worry about it.

Thank you very much for sharing your insight. So far, no one has been able to prove those two coins as fakes. There are perfect mirrors out there, but certainly not many.
