Dear collectors, I have this coin in my collection, however I have hardly any information. The only thing I know is it that is a "test coin" from a new kind of mint press back in the day. Oddly enough it features the King of Belgium (Roi de Belges) on one side with the Helvetia (Switzerland) on the other side. It weighs 6.45g and has a diameter of 21mm. Any information is highly appreciated :-)

Hi Im new to this amazing hobby.. And especially error coins. I have a "1939 B 20 Rappen" from Switzerland. The C of Confoederatio looks to be not doubled, Quadrupled! The error effects all the letters of this word only. But the C on the very tips you can see four clear impressions. I have heard about doubled dies. Die chattering. Also exists other 1939B with errors. But wondered if any anyone can explain about such errors where 4 individual impressions are visible of one denomination. This coin appears to be in good condition.Having researched a little about whats on offer. It seems quite difficult to obtain clear concise information on swiss coins and grading and mint errors. One of the joys of collecting world coins!!! Is this year of coins actually a "key date" "1939 B 20 Rappen??" And what affect would this error have the coins "Market value" . Unfortunately I cannot at present upload a photo. When i can I will. thanks
