    It's not a coin...but I picked up this 10 Rupee note when I was in Seychelles :)

    Wow, you are not called "Lord" for no reason! It is a certified coin struck with two reverse dies...NGC MS66.

    I could tell they were not the same picture. Pretty amazing error!

    Is it attributable to one particular year, or is that a multi-year type?

    (Too lazy to look it up)

    Ah ok now I get it. I just thought it was two pictures of the reverse.

    Only year for type is 1974.
    Really good detail for a copper nickel coin also.

    Well, that helps, with it being a one-year type and all.

    My initial thought was, "ah, OK, a magician's coin", but then I saw the NGC prongs and remembered that couldn't be the case, as there's no way NGC would encapsulate a magicians coin.

    I wish I remember where it came from, I think either Spink or Baldwin's for not a lot about 10 years ago.
    The firework on the turtle is really very good, almost enough for me to give it a specimen status.
