Here are pics, a bit bright though...
Yea, probably a counterfeit, but weird that they used zinc?
I have seen a silver plated copper 50 mils 1930´s and that I can understand... but the copper fake one was not very good either

Hello,
I was trying to look up the value of an 50 Mils 1935 from British Palestine I have.
After a little goggling I learned that they should be .720 silver and have a weight of 5.83 grams.

The problem is, mine is in zinc, weighs 3.72 grams and looks the same.
I was hoping someone out there have some information, if it's documented in any books?
Because I couldn't find any trail strikes, errors, variants or sales on any of the sites I visited :(

Looks good to me, don't think they would bother to fake these ones in this state as they are fairly common. Sure if they were in UNC I would take a closer look before buying.
Yours have a low grade and have a catalog value of 12-20 usd in VF-XF, but the best thing you can do is to check ebay and search in "Sold listings".

Here is one in UNC, with all the details:

That's the problem, coins like this doesn't come up for sale that often and when they do it boils down to when and where...

The design looks to be in good shape and it almost looks XF-AU, but with problems ofc.
Double strikes / overstrikes are very common on most copper coins from Russia to the late 18th and I don't think there will be any "premium" value for double strike, but I can be wrong.
There are some VF-XF examples on google that been sold for around 1500-2500 so this chart maybe somewhat wrong, probably not enough of this types out there so the prices can go higher.

It is 'rare', brekke even states it as 'very rare' but the price rage seems to fluctuate as you can see in the link below.
But then they are all "in house" auctions and the 119usd one seems to be in better shape than the 475usd, then you have the 3000-4000 and 13000usd ones... hard to tell what would happen on ebay =)

The design is from a pattern but the date should be 1825, the same goes for the novodel version.
There is a Russian catalog called KOHPOC that has a whole section devoted to "novodels" (30+ pages), a good investment if you collect pre 1900 Russian coinage.
Nether a official strike, PN or novodel = fantasy

16) Russian kopek 1704 - 1718, Maybe 1712 .B.K. - * *, but hard to tell from the photos, they har not that common in "ok" condition and depending on the mintmark they can be scarce.
But as Petrus pointed out, replicas does exist.

It probably refers to the parts of 'mintmarks' that's located under the birds both feet.
There are 3 types:
H - I
H - O
And none
The third is 'rare' to 'very rare' depending on which catalog you look in...
