Possible great Britain error coin?


Recommended Posts


While look through a large lot of random coins I came across this coin. It left me perplexed because one side is stamped as normal while on the reverse side it is mirrored and indented. Any idea what happened here? Sorry if the photos aren't great.

That would be called a brockage for ancient coins (I suppose the term applies to moderns as well?)

I've never seen this type of error on a modern coin, though. Interesting!

What are the weight and diameter?   It doesn't look like a genuine George VI coin.

This, for example, is an unexciting halfpenny with the same obverse legend:
