  • Rotated double strikes (possible hub doubling)

    Here are 2 more from my error collection, the 1963 is a double strike that has rotated a lot in between strikes, the 1938 could be the same but I am not certain, it could also be hub doubling. The whole design is doubled and not just the legends/date. Any help with that one would be appreciated.

    Anyway, enjoy.

    That's pretty cool looking, I get dizzy just looking at that 1938 ...

      Thanks Stachowski, the '38 is really difficult to look at without your head starting to hurt

        I suspect it is a fake. Is it perfectly round?

            It looks like a fake to me.

              Could be. The obverse isn't doubled. Need to send it to the Royal Mint to have it double checked, should get it back in about 6 months
