Right. There was a quantity of well made counterfeits produced in Lebanon in the later 1970s. the counterfeiters were precise to the point of duplicating the indentation you can see on the reverse here, as well as some die marks on the obverse. It is very difficult to tell the difference.

It appears that 1739 two guineas were also widely counterfeited. I dont know yet if it is a similar story or not.

so caveat emptor for this date and type.
