Soviet 5 kopek - any known counterfeits?


Recommended Posts

photograph it next to a normal 5 kop. Also, place it on top of the regular 5 kop and photograph the edge -- this would be a good start. A loss in weight would normally be associated with loss in mass. If the coin is the same size, but 1/2 in weight -- it must be made of aluminum, or something. I am no chemist, but what else would produce this result at the same size?
