    1913 penny - Freeman 175 & 176

    Your Right Pete, I must have punch in 175 when I looked in on LCA, and I only count pictured examples as the others on the site may be duplicated or incorrectly allocated . Strange though that I have found 6 - F175s and only 2 - F176s ?

    1913 penny - Freeman 175 & 176

    I think the 176 is rarer than the 164a and its grossly under rated both in desirability and value, that doesn't seem though to be uncommon with pennies. just look on LCA and you will only find 2 - 176 mules and yet as you say at very modest prices even for top grade examples. on the other hand there's 7 - 1877 narrow date pennies with an average price 3K even for date only examples. ?

    1913 penny - Freeman 175 & 176

    I check all the 1913s that I see that are unattributed, and over the last ten years or so have kept a tally of them, its 5 - 175s to 2 - 176s so far, and that's at all grades . just found another 175, so 6

    What's the betting even after the coinage goes electronic the Mint will still carry on producing this pseudo coinage
  10. Interesting, it looks like they were trying out different designs for some reason. ?
  11. I do agree with you Richard, and I guess that's why Freeman just added a foot note, but I think it is interesting.
  12. The Bronze Coinage of Great Britain Freeman , page 74 number 18 latest edition . I took pictures from all over so as to compile this, so I hope you don't mind , but your right, but my 7 0ver 7 has the narrow ribbon as I note some of the others seem to be of both types.
  13. The ribbon on the 6 is not crinkled the 9 is thick like the 8, and the 10 11 12 have the ribbon pointing down.
  14. I'm surprised to here you say that Richard. Here are three worn examples . 8+h / 7+g / 7+h Note the gap between the ribbons is wider on both the 7s , and if yours are different then there are two types of 7+g F71. I have only found this type on the 1874H
  15. As Richard says the 7 has a narrow ribbon , with the 8 being wide , and as the obv.8 can only be found on Royal Mint 1874s its a good identifier , but it might be of interest to some that the Obv 7 on the 7+g F71 1874H has a slightly wider ribbon than is to be found on the normal Obv 7 . As far as I can tell all the other combinations of 1874 and 1874H with Obv. 7 have the narrowest ribbon. I think I read about this in freeman, who thought it was a transition feature between 7 and 8 , Examples below in order 8 / wide ribbon 7 / narrow ribbon 7
