Need help on this 1/2 cent straits settlement coin

Recommended Posts

Real, fake or error?

1916 straits settlement 1/4 cent coin. I do know that 1916 only have round 1/4 cent coin, 1932 is square 1/4 cent coin. This is the combine of a 1932 square coin on a 1916 round 1/4 cent design.

The described coin is a fake. No such coin. Even the descriptions on the obverse is wrong. It should read "George V King Emperor" and not "George V King & Emperor of India"

I think the coin is a post mint job. Should be a 1/4 cent coin press fit on a cut out of a 1 cent coin, the purpose maybe to fool people is a mint error so as able to sell higher price
