I'm a new to this world of numismatics, so my knowledge is fairly small. I'm interested in this coin but I'm afraid there's a lot of fakes out there so all help is welcomed.

The seller says it weights 27gr and is 39mm and he garantees the autheticity of this coin.

As you can see it is chopmarked, but it could be fake marks.

Do you think this coin is real?.

Thanks.

Does the seller have a regular store or business or a long history? Or, is the seller from China and on ebay for the pas three weeks?

Swastika mark was probably made a long time ago by some Tibetian monks but it is in reverse. I wouldn't be suprised if someone came up with the idea of reversing it and make it as a chopmark a long time ago.

I've seen the same swastika chopmark on 8 Reale coins I've had before. I had always assumed it was done in India since it appeared along with a Sanskrit chop mark or two more than once on coins I owned, but Tibet is another possibility that had not ocurred to me.

The chop marks have been placed on the coin to misdirect attention away from the coin itself. Look at the coin, all those raised marks and bumps on the surface - it's a cast fake.

 

Couldn't those bumps be due to the hammering made to chopmark the other side of the coin?.

as far as I know, the swastika is a sacred symbol in Hinduism and Buddhism.

It isn't a exclusive symbol of the nazi, although that's what ppl think.

True, and the same mark was used by American indians as well. I've seen it on old textiles by southwestern tribes.

assuming the dies are coin-alligned, the raised marks do not correspond too well with the chop marks on the opposite side.

Here's a chopmarked Pillar Dollar from 1807 (8 reales, I believe). It is a genuine coin and has a considerable number of chopmarks. On the reverse on the column to the left you can see a "swastika" mark near the top of the column.

This coin is a bad fake...the tipography is very bad.

 

Best regards.

Here is one of mine. I have four others from different years, including a Mexican republic peso. I thought of catloguing the chopmarks but never did.
