    I would have said it's a degraded E on the die, repunched with another E ? especially as the P has also deteriorated.

    I would also say small date.

    New Victoria Copper Penny reverse ?

    I've increased the number of pixels and increased the size as much as the picture will allow if it's of any help.

    Yes, it's a really attractive and unusual shape, and is almost perfectly positioned centrally underneath the D.

    I thought ide post this one as it may be of interest to some of you. It's an 1863 penny with a dot, well a dash really under the D in F D in the shape of a half round dot.
  6. I was lucky enough to pick this one up on the Bay , unattributed as an F763 [ Gouby A1+B ] [ Bulging Eyes ] . Its the same as Example 2 On Richards site . I know Its a little battered, but so hard to find in any condition. I also note that both the Reverses on the Gouby A1+B and the A+B are different in that the date width on the A1+B is wider.

    The holes were practical in some countries, coins worn on strings around the neck, like this tiny West African 1/10th penny Indeed the only genuine EDWARD VIII penny I could afford has a hole !!!

    F38 having 2 different obverse dies

    This was a little while back , so as I remember it, It was about the 1862 2+G only, and it showed that there were at leased two reverse G dies used with the obverse 2 die [ It could be that only one obverse die was used , and retooled to give a new outer circle line ] . With such a rare combination [ 2+G ] it was likely that only one reverse die would have been used in combination with die 2 , but this date variation shows that there were indeed two dies used .

    F38 having 2 different obverse dies

    Your right , but they also have different reverses , as they both have a different date width . The first has the 2 over the tooth [12 tooth width] , the other its positioned over the gap between the teeth and narrower [11.5 tooth] .
  11. I picked up a couple of lovely young lady's the other day , I think they must be twins VICTORIA and VICTOEIA 😊 I'm not into Farthings much but these came up so I jumped at them . The E in VICTOEIA is extremely clear with just the tip of the long downward arm of the R showing.

    1953 Farthing

    Pete it looks very much like the reverse C found on the 1954 with the F in FARTHING to the gap, and as you say is not listed for 1953 . one other noticeable difference is the outer rim is much wider than the A or B. It also looks to be in Cameo with polished field and frosted images . Well done great discovery
