Side-by-side comparison of genuine and fake silver 1 ounce panda
« on: November 28, 2014, 12:57:42 PM »
Pictures of fake panda were generally poor and hard to identify, but lately there are a number of pretty good quality pictures of fakes on eBay and published here on CCF.  I captured them and put them side by side with genuine graded panda.  If you have better pictures please post them and I can update the corresponding gallery picture.

Peter Anthony, aka PandaCollector, has an excellent web page describing the various panda fakes: http://www.pandacollector.com/rogue.html

Nice work. Thanks.

Based on the design of those fake pandas, they were made pre-2006. Most pre-2006 fake pandas have defects in eyes and nose and furs are missing the details, while the temple design and 3-dimensional details are different from the genuine.

The quality of post-2006 fake pandas are very good. However, the 3-dimensional details, especially the fur sections still can be used to spot the fake.

I agree.  The later date panda have no easily identifiable differences that are discernible in low resolution photos.  Identification requires medium to high resolution pictures and the keys, like you said, are the coarse texture of body fur and around the eyes.
