    I agree, I also see the slight indent of the W of LCW ...

    Appears to be the same coin to me.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    I remember seeing advertisements for "Certified Genuine Facsimile Autographed Baseballs". Does that translate to that they are guaranteeing them to be fakes? Or Genuine Fakes?? It's Ludicrous. And people buy them.

    I would tend to concur with you on your determination. My comparison of certain diagnostic indicators led me to that conclusion too. I'm not sure what the current known population is, so I will defer to your numbers. For the census, currently i have two obverse 8's, as well as two obverse 7's which include the discovery coin.

    I presume that the coin in question is the 1861, which, although admittedly it does look like a P/F, I would tend to doubt that it is a HALP penny. Although it is known with both obverses 6 and 7; to the best of my knowledge it is only known on reverse G. The coin in question is a reverse E (note the LCW). I would suspect that it is some sort of gunk at the tip of the crossbars of the F in HALF. For what it is worth, I hope that I am proven incorrect, or that I have been looking at wrong coin. The best scenario would be that it is a new discovery (those are always nice). Best of Luck

    $240,000 😀 The Edward V111 brass threepence sold for $140,000 😯 Actually Pete, the Edward VIII brass 3 pence, sold for $144,000 ($120,000 + $24,000). You're correct with the 1933 Penny, $240,000 ($200,000 + $40,000)

    Or the 1922 "Plain" US cent.

    Unless it's a trick of lighting and imaging and not really there; all that I think I see is a hint of the L & the A. Possibly my line is angled incorrectly as all I can claim to see is 2 partial letters. Of course there is always the possibility of a different die variety. Unfortunately we may never be sure.
  10. Bronze & Copper Collector


    Blocked die is certainly a possibility.

    I've examined the images and I believe the LAUER is on the coin, very faint and very worn. I've tried to both underline and circle the most visible portion, that of the LA of LAUER.

    There is only one "Groucho"! Or, as he was introduced on "You Bet Your Life", the quiz show that he hosted. Here he is, the one, the only, Groucho Marx. Groucho Marx of Marx Brothers fame. Although probably most famous on his own in later years.

    Interesting.. If it were an overdate, it should be visible under direct visual examination. As I assume from your reply that it is not, then it probably is just a trick of the lighting. Pity.....

    Do I detect signs of a possible 6 over a higher 6? Or is it just a trick of the enlargement??
