    Some hapless soul paid £75 for this one and sent it for NGC grading, only to discover it was fake. o_O

    Coin at 4:52 mark

    wow that's a glaring fake Crown, it's even coin alignment and not medal alignment.

    Very hard to believe it came from the Royal Mint.

    Weak strike, wrong reeding/copper planchet.
