(I'll be starting the ANA's correspondence courses in July and the syllabus includes a Counterfeit Detection course. I can't wait.) I've been collecting Chinese Pandas over the past couple of years. So far, I have 2010 to 2019. Those from earlier years are quite expensive (for me at least). I just won an auction for a 2020 Panda ($35). Since it wasn't a "ridiculously cheap" price, I didn't expect any problem. I received it today. The item description mentions that it is in the Original Mint Capsule. Now, for the Pandas that I own, I've noticed that the Chinese Mint capsules have 3 distinct "nubs" spaced equally along the circumference. When I received my 2020 Panda today, I noticed these nubs were missing. That triggered my suspicion initially. So I removed the coin and weighed it. It weighs 29.80g, instead of 30g. Since this is less than 1%, I thought it was acceptable. But after researching on the net, I understand that even a 0.1g deviation would be unacceptable. I tried searching here at CT, but couldn't find anything specific. There is a member called Pandacollector but he/she hasn't been around since 2017. Here are photos of the 2020 Panda I purchased. To my (untrained) eye, everything looks crisp and sharp. The thickness is identical to other geniune Pandas that I have. I compared this image to those from official coin sellers and can't find anything different. Here is its weight. And finally, here's a side-by-side comparison of the capsules, which shows 3 nubs missing. (Now, maybe the capsule is wrong, but the coin is okay? That may be a possibility.) Finally, the coin is non-magnetic. I would appreciate and welcome your thoughts and comments. As always, thank you for the help and education.
