Displaying 5 Lots in Category - Forgeries
SOVEREIGN: 1895M Jubilee Head. NB: the last Jubilee Head Sovereigns were minted in 1893 therefore this head type dated 1895 is an impossible combination: the coin is faked . Analysed by X-Ray to be 20ct gold, 7.89g.
Bulging Hagner album with collection remainders including ranges of forgeries, "Cinderellas", Imperial & Republic issues, some early PRC issues that are probably all reprints, some blocks & part-sheets, etc etc. Lots of little nuggets to be uncovered.
