OK. This is a little late, but as I say better late than never. This is a second article about the fundamentals of detecting counterfeit coins. I can not stress how significant this practice is. There are several countries who turn a blind eye to counterfeiting. Most are in the east, but never the less, this is an on going problem within the coin community. Even today there are encapsulated coins that have been counterfeited with the grades and labels of some well know grading services. So if you're a numismatic enthusiast, I suggest you take time a read through this educational information. It may one day spare you from the agony of purchasing a phony.
Enjoy the read.
