FAKE – “The Galvano Boy´s”. A typical effort, it shares the “same dies” as the BM coin and was made from an electrotype. The forgery is completely free of real wear but areas of design are unsharp, the join between thetype and flan was rounded, the relief is fuller and more rounded than the original. A dangerous fake.
