5 lire 1832, Parma, original or no?

Recommended Posts



You are perfectly right! Even if some of these specimens may represent a single coin under different light conditions (e.g. https://imgbb.com/3ySrQCx and https://imgbb.com/prWTcMc) they are all fake clones, undoubtely. They show a same level of wear and, as you noticed, have signs, defects or metal flaws at the same points. Besides all original coins I saw have the the figures 32 of the date restriked on 15 and you can clearly recognize the shadows of the terminal digit (5), but not in these forgeries.

Where do these samples come from?

I think that they are casts of the "pressed" type.

P.S. the photos you posted on #1 come from a same coin, while these latter from multiple exemplars.
