It is magnetic and the weight is right. I was thinking that it might be some type of test piece or a pattern too. That would give it more value as opposed if it was just tinkered with in someone’s garage. Would be nice to confirm. Haven’t found anything yet.
Same for my 69 Uganda set. The 1000 schilingi weighs 140 g.
Edge smooth too? It was minted at the Belgian mint if that helps any. But quite interesting.
Smooth edge. All the detentions and characteristics are right.
we have never heard of you.
I like them
The counter stamp appears to be all one stamp, not individual letters and numbers, so it would seem they were doing more than just this coin.
Post if you discover the reason for it.
I wonder how they do this in mints. Appears serial number is stamped into the planchet at same time coin is struck rather than before or after striking. Have seen something similar in old French medals where a person’s name is part of the design (see pic below). Each medal has a different name. I’m guessing there is a rectangular hole in the lower die where a sub-die with a serial number, person’s name, etc. can inserted. Anyone know for sure?
Separate names with a comma.
