Sorry but that's what I see.
OK, good description. The first thing I saw were file marks. Then I saw something else. Now what made the edge of this gold coin look that way?
I am sure that there were plenty of seasoned readers and newbies that read this thread. Well done again getting ribbbed thru the whole thing from seasoned veterans.
My second thought was that that line around the circumference is a join line -- maybe a cast copy as @robp said, but I was thinking "mule made from two real coins", like (say) joining the obverse of a 1916-P dime and the reverse of a 1917-D.
The class clowns are the members I try to reach in my posts. I was one when I was a child in grade school. I hid my ignorance with humor. Humor makes the forum more fun so it does not get too serious.
The slit around the edge indicated that two halves were put together to make this fake.
More quizzes coming. I'll try to remember to alert these three so they can entertain us with their humor in between the serious replies from others.
With many holders, especially the old ones, you can’t see the edge anyway.
Could you share what the obverse and reverse were for this example?
