    Remember the PCGS farthing mule debacle from about 15 years ago??! Rather than admit an error, they essentially created a new variety...

    New Victoria Copper Penny reverse ?

    DUH!! Of course you are absolutely CORRECT. That will teach me to do reseaech when I am half asleep. I do have it listed properly in my spreadsheet abd hopefully in my album too. At least that relieves me of any hallucinations I was having regarding any similarities between the 2 coins. Anyway, so long as the images are posted already, Iain, have you come across an 1855 closer colon (much as the 1853 Peck-1503) such as this?thus?? Regards and thanks again.

    Regardless of any similarity, could you post images of both sides of your coin?

    I checked my 1855 plain tridents and there is one coin that might possibly be a match. More than likely it is my imagination running amok. This coin I had identified about 15 years ago or so and placed separately amongst my 1855s inasmuch as the colon is slightly closer than on others. It does have a slightly "fatter" last 5. Richard, maybe you can compare the colon spacing and see if there is a match there. If so, then that might be an identifier if indeed there is something ornate in the breast plate. If it is just a closer colon spacing, then it is merely a die variety. If indeed, in addition to the colon spacing, there is also a more ornate design on the breastplate, then we have identified a new reverse die. Obviously the ideal situation would be to find a high grade example and either confirm or refute this observation. Again, despite the definite difference in the colon spacing we might be in total fantasy land regarding any design on the breastplate.

    Which 1926 Florin is the Better Coin

    Damn auto-correct, I wanted to write "UNgraded".
  13. Bronze & Copper Collector

    Which 1926 Florin is the Better Coin

    I concur. IMHO the upgraded coin is more desirable.
