Uncirculated? Seems too good to be true
Happy to send individual pics

The 1925 is definitely not uncirculated and the others also appear to have some circulation wear without seeing the obverses.

Too good to be true?

The patina on the 1915, and the 1911 look a little sus to me. Needs to be very closely examined for variations on design detail. I am definitely NOT an expert in this area.
I hope someone else chimes in on this thread with more expertise than me.

Patina on the '25 looks OK.

Thx Sel
That's what's I was gobsmacked about.
The patina on all (besides the 1925) looked odd
Appreciate your comments

Hard to tell without obverse pics.
But I think most of them have been cleaned.
You can still see some of the residue.

The coins with the suspect patinas look like they have been cleaned with vinegar.
No and I mean no, serious collector would do that!!

Which leads me to thinking that they are Chinese fakes.
I have seen other Australian George V Pennies in pictures here in the CCF, which opinions than mine,
that have concluded that they are Chinese fakes.

Might be worth doing a visual search on Google Images:
'Chinese fake Australian George V Penny', for comparisons.
