British West Africa 1920 KN 2 shilling


Recommended Posts

I will appreciate any advice or experience someone may have with BWA 1920 KN brass 2 shillings. I've got one recently that looked smaller to the eye compared to the later ones I have. It measured to 53.6 mm and slightly smaller weight of 11.2 gr vs. later 1922 and 1938KN that both have 11.3 gr and between 53.8 and 54.0 mm.


Remick in British Commonwealth coins mentioned that counterfeit brass 1 and 2 shillings of BWA are quite common and easily distinguishable by the smaller and cruder flan. I am wondering if anyone has any experience with these...
