Aah okay. Thank you for getting back to me so quickly. I've done a little looking around about the soviet stamped ones and it's all very interesting. Are these fakes common then? How were you able to tell this is one so easily, just out of interest?

I am so excited that I found this site and your awesome post.  I just fell into a lot of Chinese coins, and I have at least 6 different Fat Man coins.  I am very excited because I found, though your post, that I have a very rare variety.  Photo 26.   I posted a couple on ebay, under the same name that I am using here, and I really wish I saw this first!  I was wondering, if you would mind if I put a link to this post in my next listing, because, OMG this is a wealth of knowledge!!!!   So, now for my question.  I have a variety that is not listed here.  Right hand side of the obverse, approximately 4:00, there is a signature.... L. GIORGI Is this a fake? A special variety?   I really need to know now! I hope you are still online, I would love to post some pictures of these and learn which ones they are!  thank you soo much, again, for doing such a great posting!!

Welcome to CCF, Eileenlab!

"A picture is worth a thousand words", the best way to identify coins is to post pictures both front and back as well as the edge. 

Please be advised that "L. GIORGI" is very rare and fakes are abundant, so be prepared to be disappointed.

So, here are the 2 Fat Man varieties that I would really like to have someone look at.... The first one is the L Giorgi - how do I know that it is real and not a fake?  The second one is the Gansu.... I do have 4 more 1914, and I think that they might be all different varieties!!  I would love some opinions.Thank you!

I'm no expert, but I can tell you the L. Giorgi is a fake simply because the letters are too large.  See the photo of NGC certified L. Giorgi: http://www.ngccoin.com/certlookup/CertResults.aspx?CertNumber=2760782-002

Dear Eileenlab,

The Gansu fatman dollar with 2 chinese characters on both sides is also fake.

On obverse it has sharp edge also on small tooth are missing (close to a rim) or they are not clear.

On reverse there is the same problem--small tooth are missing...

Sorry both coins are fakes.

Such of coins it is better to buy on reputable auction house, but you must know they are very expensive.

Best wishes from Shanghai
