Opinions on this 1772 Para (Russia - Ekat. II, coinage for Moldavia)


Recommended Posts

Original or fake?




The lettering of the legend on the reverse looks a little different than the pictures in the recent Sincona auction (lot 541 which went for CHF 19,000):




I'd say it was a very clever fake, but I'm no expert on this type.

I won't swear on it, but these look okay. The proof would be the edge pattern. Also, there are die varieties available from what I read. Here's one from my collection.
