I HAVE TWO COINS OF 5RS OF YEAR 1998 .THEY BOTH ARE DIFFERENT FROM EACH OTHER 

THE LETTER OF 1998 IN ONE COIN IS BOLD

THE LETTER OF 1998 IN ANOTHER COIN IS THIN AS COMPARED TO THE ABOVE COIN  AND ALSO ITS IMPRESSION SEEMS UNUSUAL 


IS THE COIN FAKE OR ITS JUST AN ERROR

My guess is one of the coin is from Bombay mint (km#154.4) which some mistake for counterfeit because of Type C lion and thinner legends.

wonderful! you got a reeded edge coin. That's good find. All 5 Rs definitive series from 1992 to 2004 across all the mints are security edges so reeded is good to get. For bold and not bold, we still need clear snap to help you out.

Reeded edge coins are not known of this coin. The two edge varieties exists which are security and milled. Calcutta mint has two types of security edge variety for all years.

http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/444/5rs1998yearunusual.jpg/ <---- left one is from Kolkata Mint

http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/827/5rs1998yearunusualback.jpg/ <--- Right is from Kolkata Mint

http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/210/5rs1998yearunusuall.jpg/ <----Right is from Kolkata Mint (Faulty / incomplete security edge)

Reeded surface is known to exist for these coins. Its a good find if its real. I suggest you repost the images only for the reeded coin in natural light.
