  1. Yes Pete I hurriedly read Santa's post , and I can see a difference , the size of the holes . The narrower one has both centre holes of a similar size , but with the wider date type the top hole is smaller than the bottom one. I cant personally see anything else .
  2. Iv just realised a way to tell the difference between the types , its by the centre holes , on the straight crossover type the holes are almost circular , where as on the normal type its misshapen.
  3. Below is a picture of other examples i have of the two types , plus the normal common type

    Cleaned or not?

    It seems to me that if its that hard to tell the difference , then it doesn't really matter so long as no damage has been done to the coins surface

    As was I . with the scratches and the ware on the obverse, I thought it topped out at a very good price

    Another way to distinguishing this type I have noticed is by a couple of cracks running through the word VICTORIA , and as they appear on the top and bottom crack across the date type, and on the examples with the single crack running along the bottom of the date, it may be the case that the Victoria crack precedes the cracks through the date , and as such it may be a good feature to look out for in finding a very early example of this 8 over 2 type
  14. your Roses are a lovely colour , looks good and a great chill out spot.
  15. If its a girl I definitely don't fancy it .
