This is a Strike Through Foreign Object error coin, belongs to my facebook collector friend, Mr. Kuan Seng
He is one of the frequent contributors in my facebook group, MEVaCC.
This coin weights about 5.70g, just a little bit exceed the standard weight of 5.66g.

I forgot to ask him to include the obverse image of this coin. Who knows that this coin also is a DDO of 20 sen 2007?

      This part of Kedah Cockerel Money was discovered in Sungai Johor, Kota Tinggi Johor. So unfortunate that we could not locate the broken fighting cock that was part of this money.

    Back in the 1700s, this rings were worth five and a half cents.
