After reading some of your comments about overlap, I have looked over the entirety of the edging and I did actually find 1 Possibly 2 examples that I hope will shed a little more light on its authenticity prior to doing my Specific Grav test. The one example is CLEAR as day that theirs some sort of lap and the other example is almost exactly across the coin on the other end but is much less clear as to what is happening. Here are the two new images below!

Kojack I see the one clear overlap on the lower picture, but I can not see a matching lap on he other.

I have rotated both pictures and placed them one over the other - the overlaps on genuine coins were always the identical length.

My book on Counterfeit Portrait 8Rs is available from Amazon or from me directly if you want it signed.
