    I’ve got a 1922 penny I’ve been told it’s rare with printing errors on it any idea please 

    You've posted in the Decimal Coins forum - hopefully the mods will move it to the correct place.

    And yes, we need to see pictures.

    Funny enough hatred of anything german lasted well into the seventies and early eighties (I remember a few old timers from the eighties that always refused to buy german made tools and cars)

    I remember the mid-70s Fawlty Towers episode 'The Germans' which totally ripped the p*ss out of that anti-German sentiment.

  3. My bet is that it's not "no H" - the H wears away before the date or Britannia, and yours is a well worn specimen (the mintmark is below the date and would have been in that area of total wear there).

    The defining issue for genuine 'no H ' pennies is that they have an obverse that differs slightly from the 1882H pennies - it might not be possible to tell from the obverse on yours, but a picture might help.

    On a different subject, I have been studying the obverse 4 missing leaf types where all the examples that I've seen bear slight traces of the "missing" leaf and a weakened linear circle above the missing leaf. The example in Michael Gouby's book, however, shows a complete linear circle:


    However, close examination suggests that these 2 pictures are of the same coin - compare the shading and the dark spot on the right hand side. Perhaps the 2nd picture was doctored (definitely not by Michael) to illustrate what the missing leaf might look like. Michael agrees with me and intends to include a different picture in any future updates to his book.

    I therefore think that the genuine missing leaf types look like this, with weakened linear circle:


    Which is probably what would be expected from a partially filled die in that area of the coin.

    well spotted.

    Very kind - I accept your offer - I will of course send you back something of about equal value

    A pic up from the York coin fair this last weekend - almost certainly a Moore counter issued for use in schools which were starting to take off at this time due to a health interest in education in the 1850's


    the only toy coin I have! the reverse says 12 PENCE MAKE ONE SHILLING

    Didn't he suffer a personal tragedy? I think he was very badly affected by it IIRC.

    Bacterial meningitis. That’s a bugger. Taken before his time. I must re-visit my vinyl collection, I have several Yardbirds and Jeff Beck albums. End of an era……..again.  😢


    Over Under Sideways Down not only has brilliant guitar on, it's quite incredible it was created before 1967.


  8. Welcome to the forums  Kipster! With a few exceptions I've become a 'type collector' but I do like good quality copper and bronze; there seems to be more varieties in those series if you're into that side of things.
