This coin weighs 2.3g and is 20mm in diameter. If any of you spot a fake in this coin please let me know.

Do you know why there this coin has extra shiny surfaces and a low weight? Environmental Damage perhaps?

The few coins I have bothered to examine (which you have posted) all look like they have been 'electrocuted' by someone that practices the evil arts
In this condition they are of little or no value to most serious collectors
You would be better off if they had simply drilled holes in them
IN GOD WE TRVST ....... all others pay cash !

COGITO ERGO SPVD
I think ...... therefore I yam

FVRIVS RVFVS do they look faked to you? I agree they look pretty bad, is there any way to explain their strange appearence?

In the event you are unfamiliar with what FR refers to, here's the entry for electrolysis from Numiswiki:


Electrolysis
Also referred to as zapping, nuking, or frying; electrolysis is a poor method for cleaning coins using electricity. It can be useful if done properly by a practiced expert but as a tool used by amateurs the results are usually dismal.
