Comments

Counterfeit pieces made at the Suceava mint in Romania exist. These coins were made some time in the 17th century, and for many forgeries, the coins have fictitious dates, including: "12", "14", and "55". Forgeries of coins with actual dates also exist, including: "62". While the crudeness of the counterfeits may vary, they have a much more coppery appearance than the real ones. Even so, the forgeries are still very collectable, and sometimes worth more than the real pieces.
