  1. Crook 1888

    1863 penny stumpy 'Y'.

    Thanks for the feedback. I've collected since being a kid, on and off, but know little beyond the basics- learning more recently, and finding the overstrikes and errors on the pennies very interesting. As you say Jelida, the stick is too short to even look like a Y. It's my most interesting Victoria penny though for it- I will try and get up a picture of the whole coin when I get the chance.
  2. Hello, I'm new to the forum but been a novice collector for a while. I have this 1863 penny in my collection which has a short 'Y', sorry for the poor picture quality. I'm wondering if anyone has seen one before?
