Any Northern Song Dynasty Coinage Expert There? I Need To Validate This Coin

Above Yuanyou TongBao weights 9 grams
Diameter 30.2mm to 30.6mm depending on where the Vernier caliper is placed.
Thickness measured with the Vernier is 1.9mm or 2mm

According to numista Yuanyou TongBao 2 cash the weight is 7.85g and Diameter 28mm.

I heard there is different variations and perhaps even a 3 cash but I am unable to find concrete information from the website?

I hope there is someone with expertise in Northern Song Dynasty coins to provide an answer?

Thanks you.

Could it be a chipped die @ "A" ? Circulation wear and damage could have been on both sides. Weight looks good though my scale is one decimal point.

The Obverse with several letters missing and a V-shape surface peel @ 9 o'clock position.



The reverse with "A" @ 10 o'clock position seem out of shape.

Not sure if it is an error.
If it is, what is the name of the error type? At the reverse lower left corner it seems a piece of triangular planchet skin came out and folded over.







Thanks you

Hello there,

I assume this piece is genuine? Before I part my money for it. Appreciate inputs very much from all of you.







He only has a kitchen scale without decimal points which says 13g.

I will weigh with my scale upon getting hold of the coin. Presuming the weight meets the numista spec of 13.5g, and base on the photos shown. This is genuine or not?

Best regards and thanks in advance.

Hello all

Just bought this 1872 Straits Settlements Queen Victoria 1. But I discovered inconsistencies with numista specification.

The Obverse


The reverse


Instead of it being medal alignment which most UK coins are and I check numista which it should be. This piece is Coin Alignment, just like the US coins!

Next the standard weight is 9.33g but this piece is 9.7g from my scale!


What do you guys think? Restrike with original dies, counterfeit or a genuine coin?

Hi all,

Could anyone confirm my suspicion that this 1927 Straits Settlements King George V Silver 10 coin was struck in the 1916 1/4 Bronze instead? Thus, an error coin. Or is it just pure counterfeit?

The coin obverse and reverse:




The coin weighs 2.3g on my scale


And Diameter is 18mm



Stacking the aforesaid coin with the 1916 1/4 Bronze for a close comparison.




The thickness of the 1927 supposing Bronze 10 is more in line with the 1916 Bronze 1/4
