Reverse I: Hand Cut Die, Weak Lower Left Wing



Obverse 7                                                            Reverse H



Comments: Weight is 5.8 grams (top) and die struck on german silver metal from hand cut dies. Both counterfeit have bold edge reeding and normal coin turn die alignment.

Note the square lower loop of the 6 digit in the date to identify the obverse die. Reverse die has obvious weakness in the lower left wing as made and poorly defined horizontal shield lines. Two seen to date by C. Majtyla as shown above.
