Picked these up at the flea market. Had no idea what they were, but the size and feel and overall look of them had me sold. I'm still not sure if they're all genuine, so hopefully someone can help out a bit
First up is a counterfeit 1890-1908 Kwang Tung province dollar (Y 203). I had strong doubts about it at the booth, but I went for it anyway. It's ever-so-slightly thinner than the others, and noticeably smaller in diameter. Unlike the others it does not look like it was ever buried or circulated, and it's the only one without paint on the edge. Turns out it's quite magnetic and quite fake.
This one is much more convincing. Also from Kwang Tung province, this dollar dates from 1909-1911 (Y 206). Looks, feels, and sounds silver. It has a very slight rotation error, seen in the pictures. Don't know if it's a fake or not.
But wait, there's more...
