Israeli forged(?) 1 Shekel coin w/thin crooked lettering & poor detail, 4.1g

Price includes tax and commission
Vat is calculated only on auction house commission

Israeli forged(?) 1 Shekel coin, with very thin, crooked lettering and poor detail; in VF-EF condition. Presented as a forgery, as unlikely to be any kind of pattern. This piece weighs 4.10g, which is ironically similar to the Chanukka issue 1 Shekel coins (which all seem to weigh perfectly 4.00g); regular issue genuine 1 Shekel coins however weigh anywhere between 3.40 - 3.50g. Photos of a genuine piece are placed to the right of this one for comparison.
