Hi all,

I run into these interesting Straits Settlements 10 1927 and Malaya 20 1950 coins. Looks like struck 2 times. Wonder if they are genuine Mint error OR post mint induced? What your opinions?

1950 20




1926 10

Bill Snyder back in 7/19/2013 here in CCF posted very similar double struck errors. My recall was Snyder had some very nice legitimate errors as some were genuine awesome world brockages but a Malaysian responder called these particular Snyder Philippine produced D/S's = bogus coins. It all comes down to a specific mint operation coming up with sufficient die press pressure where the second strike OBLITERATES the first strike - this is of course different from the 18thC and older with a conventional screwpress. This end result is possible with PARTIAL obliteration w/ screwpress D/S's. But with two coins dated 1926 & 1950. Questionable. I like that term post mint induced - rather than post mint damage <BG>. Show me another 20thC D/S with PARTIAL obliteration? It may be possible with some third world coinage mints? There interesting even if in the end being bogus. John Lorenzo - United States

Was told by an experienced Straits dealer that these are most likely fake, there was no such thing in the past,
they only appeared recently which is very suspect.

The underlying feature and wear are distinct to not be mint double strike

I'm learning towards post mintage damage to make them appear like errors.
