"Struck from modern dies. The obverse die is too large and flat. Generally, the letters in the original are confidently, but lightly made; in the counterfeit die they are recut and have a thicker, less graceful, more regular appearnce. Note the letter N; it is recut with the vertical strokes nearly the same length in the counterfeit; on the original the left stroke id only half as long as the right one. The head and neck of the bird have been touched up in the new die and have become slimmer in the process.

The reverse incuse is deeper than on any of the published speciments of this die. The die break on the edge of the incuse below the crab which occurs on all these specimens has been tooled off in the counterfeit die.

As a side-note, another nickname for MonedaExclusiva is Miguel Vigo (the owner's name).
The coin is currently on sale on eBay for 10 times the hammer price, without any mention of the "detail" given above…

Probably a later aftercast of this forgery: https://www.acsearch.info/search.html?id=2355944 This version here has a heavier flan but the devices are much more blurry and there are numerous casting faults, especially on the reverse.
