Could someone give an actual count of reedings across a standard linear measurement such as 1/2″ or 10mm, for BOTH the 10 Centavos and 20 Centavos? Counting the reedings across the whole coin is a lot of work, and there is no picture for the 10 C, so this article is of limited use to the generalist.
