Wow! That's very interesting. The pattern sure looks real enough, although I've never read of counterstruck coins for Greece. That doesn't mean they don't exist. Either way, it's quite a curiousity piece. :ninja:

Good afternoon to all,it's 10 LEPTA 1830 small phoenix (foinikas in greek),struck to real 1820,also in rarity key report R8.



In the first photo is pattern (R 5) which now by 5 stick in star,six have the circulation coins.

In the second photo is turkish countermark / capodistrias 10 lepta 1831,that specimen sold in Spink 1979,also in rarity key report R8.


The coins of Capodistrias call to collector world ''hammered coin''.

The first strike specimens of capodistrias is 1-5-10 lepta.(June 27,1829)
