I was still in my MNS meeting in Mont Kiara,I replied to Mr.fakkahqarsh (his web name), I can only be back to my Dickson Niew Collection Shop in Subang Jaya at 6.15pm. To my surprised,he replied he wanted to wait.
We met at 6.20pm. Mr.fakkahqarsh,a teacher from Baling,Kedah came to my shop with his lovely and beautiful wife, showed me his rare piece of his 1997 Bunga Raya 50 Cents counterfeits coin.
|The deformed number 7 and some odd font alphabets looked like it was minted with a retooled die.|
Weight: 9.03gm. (Normal:9.33gm)
This is my first encountered with a counterfeit 50 cents coin dated 1997, after seriously trying to complete a full set of 50 Cents counterfeits since 2008. Other rare dates are year 1993 and 2002.

In my collection those can be attracted to magnets are year 1993,1998,1999,2000,2001,2002,2004 and 2005.
I feel extremely grateful and happy when his lovely wife and him allowed me to inherit his this rare date 1997 50 Cents counterfeit coin.
Mr.fakkahqarsh is very passionate on his error coins collection.
