Spain Fake Colonial 8 Escudos (Counterfeit) 1792
Pipi sent us a picture of her coin, shown at left. Pretty cool, huh? It is an imitation of a Spanish 'gold dubloon' you hear about in stories of the early Americas. Some replicas (counterfeits) you see have the word COPY inscribed, others do not. They are all imitations of the real thing.
Coin: 1281 , Genre: Colonizers and Colonies
