Hello there. This is the newest addition into my collection which I acquired through a local some weeks ago. This coin was discovered from the river shore of Sungai Terengganu. The deepening work for Monsoon Cup to Sungai Terengganu has unearthed this coin to the surface.
I have a pair of this coin, which the other one is in really bad condition. Only a very small part of leaves are visible on the reverse part. How can this piece escaped natural corrosion? Perhaps she was entrapped in an isolated place ?
From reference, it has been noted that counterfeited exists made from lead and tin, and those can be bend easily. I had try the bend test with this one, to my relief it can't be bend! I was afraid a little more force can crack her.
By the way, I just love you. Ahah XD
