    2004 5 Rupees error?

    Does anyone know anything about Indian coins? I have a 5 Rupees coin that seems to have an error on the reeding. I just can't find anything about the 2004 or any other year with this "error".

    This is considered the 'Security Edge' for this denomination coin. There was also the smooth edge. This link tells about the coin and the specifics on the edge as well:

    Your coin looks like the security edge with some damage.

    Thank you. Yes, I did read about the security edge. I just couldn't tell if this was damage or an error. One part of it on the bottom in one of the pictures looks kind of like a small cud on the rim.

    I think that is a lamination Sheila. (Second to last image)

    Thank you. It is so hard for me to tell with the way that I have to hold it to see.
