    Pennies High grade.

    You're welcome, and I agree...it should have been a 3.

    1978 2pence coin

    Someone has machined a recess into the 2p and glued a ½p into it.

    Obviously it's a halfpenny, but excellent provenance: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Young-Victoria-1-Penny-1858-Bun-DEF/253919070956?hash=item3b1ec18aec:g:PNwAAOSwgEhbilJ2

    Just for those of us with a neck that goes straight up and down.

    Now, now, I don't go around casting disparaging remarks about your coins.

    I've never seen anything like that, only the streaky ones. Here's a 1920 - both this and the 1913 above have lamination issues. It looks to me like a problem with the metal mix which is why I always thought this was the brass issue described.

    I agree, I don't think they should be doing it. But I don't blame them either.

    Can you show me what you mean? This is the same as any of the others I've seen.

    I'm not entirely convinced about the "brass shells in the mix" explanation - has this ever been officially verified? The reason I'm unconvinced is this penny that shows the typical "brass in the mix" effect but that predates WWI. I've also got one or two from 1918.
