Hello everyone! Sharing an interesting piece. Numista specifies the weight to be 13.1g, this piece is overweight at 13.7g

The Obverse with the coin in 2X2 cardboard flip


The Reverse with the coin in 2X2 cardboard flip


The Obverse for a clearing view


The Reverse for a clearer view


Below are pics of the diameter and thickness with a rather crude Vernier:



13.7g


Is this a dual type error coin? Is it Cud error with Die rotation error (I measure 15 degree) or a Counterfeit? What are your opinions?

Thank you

I believe that the quality control on those issues was rather poor with respect to the weight.

@Spence,

Closed up photo, I am not sure, seem like the details are under the patches. The patches are raised areas.

This is normal with this particular type of 200 cash coins.

Quality control barely exist and there are many varieties. These are struck in copper or brass or even overstruck over old Empire cash coins.

Those "patches" are known as "cuds". That's where part of the die that struck the coin broke away, leaving a raised area with no design elements on the coin.
