Just wondering if anyone ordered and received restriked coin sets from Calcutta mint. It would be interesting to see the scans of 'R2010'

All four of them. Every one of them has 'R2010' printed on the folder to distinguish between the original strikes and restrikes.

I have heard that the sets started being delivered from last week. I haven't ordered any and so was excited to see the difference between original and restrikes if any.

sir,

I have recieved the sets. All the sets are embosed R-  2010 on jacket and coin holder.

In SBI proof set Rs 5 coin it is mentioned composition of metal as Ni-Cu 25%-75%, but coin looks are chromimum like the current coins of Rs 5. I have not seen the original set, need to know about the diffrence.

The coin is indeed Ci-Ni unless the mint messed up big time. In mint condition Cu-Ni coins sometimes develop hazy golden toning which is natural and might appear like Ni-Br coins. You can find images of the original SBI UNC set in our photo gallery section to compare to.
