Counterfeit + Talisman

Am I right that if you counterfeit a talisman, you get:
 +1 Pound, +1 Buy from the counterfeit
 +2 Pounds from playing the talisman twice
but
 no get-a-free-copy-of-cheap-stuff property, because the talisman is no longer in play.

When I first saw Counterfeit, I immediately thought Counterfeit+Quarry is really strong. Counterfeit gives you the +Buy and all Action cards cost $4 less, not to forget the +$3 you get from those cards.

But Counterfeit+Quarry and Counterfeit+Talisman are not different from Counterfeit+Copper.
Similarly Counterfeit+Hoard and Counterfeit+Royal Seal are not different from Counterfeit+Silver.

Trick question:  which is heavier, a pound of feathers, or a pound of silver (i.e. a pound sterling)?

Would have made a bit better if you didn't announce it was a trick question beforehand....

Also, a pound sterling is not the same as a pound of silver.....Pound Sterling is the name for the a currency, therefore it has no weight. Whereas a pound of silver is a weight of silver (of which none is present in British coins I believe)

Britannia Coins contain silver and it is a grade higher than sterling (.925) known as Britannia silver (.9584). Perhaps you were referring to coins in current circulation.

But what's the answer?

OK, yes, I was using historical (and, yes, ancient historical) definitions in which 1 pound of currency was 1 pound of silver.

A pound of feathers is likely expressed in avoirdupois making it 16 ounces or 453.6 grams.

A pound of silver is likely expressed in troy making it 12 troy ounces or 373.24 grams.

If these are the conventions being used then the pound of feathers is heavier.

Well since you're being so precise.  The conversion to grams depends on converting force to mass.  Five significant figures is a tad much given how widely little g varies depending on your position on Earth's surface.

I don't think they mean lb (force) but (currency) which was once tied to weight (and hence g), but has since been defined to be always exactly 373.24 grams (mass - no dependence on g). Or I misunderstood.

So what's heavier, a Counterfeit pound, or a pound of Talismans?

I think the place where they keep the confiscated counterfeits would be more cumbersome than the team of talismans taking turns trumping-up trivial trades.
