The coin is a forgery struck from transfer dies. Whilst the coin exhibits the characteristics of a struck coin, there are a couple of areas of significant concern. Firstly, there is a lack of detail in areas which we would expect to be well preserved, e.g. where the forehead of the portrait meets the hairline. Secondly, part of the letter forms of the 'A' and 'N' (the first and last letters of the ethnic) are inexplicably missing. The die used for the transfer is the same as Lorber 26 (O15/R21).
