Unusual electrotype of Br 713, Co 8 - Coinage axis. CH LC-2A1. Fine. 10.64 grams. A curious electro of Co 8. Was this a study piece of an unpublished Co 8 with inverted dies, or a fabrication, perhaps meant to deceive collectors? The heavy weight and visible seams on the edge would have made deception difficult. Merits further study.
