1901 India princely state, KM# 44, Travancore - 2 Chuckram copies and fakes

1 post in this topic

1901 Travancore CHS 2 - There are many contemporary fakes and copies. Here's one that got certified in error. Compare the Conch and the type... Also take a close look at the 'R' in the RV. Check how the 'V' overlaps the 'R'

 Due to extensive forgery the 2 Chuckram coin had to be withdrawn from circulation by the Kingdom of Travancore. However, many hundred coins remained in the market... it's not the graders fault. It takes staring at 100s of pics to spot the difference....
