Penny Acquisition of the week

Hmm I don’t see any obvious signs of tooling but it’s difficult to rule out ! Assume there would be still be the outline of the letter visible under a loupe due to the surface under the removed H being less toned ?

As I've said before on here I don't often buy coins these days but will, once in a blue moon, spend an idle hour or so grubbing about on Ebay.

It would seem there are still occasional bargains to be had as I've just bought this. BIN £1.50, and with free postage.

Not in my opinion, no. Good strike, especially to the obverse. But not prooflike, nor an impaired proof. 

Currency strike.

Here's the F38 I won earlier this week. Not a great specimen but extremely rare, and another Freeman type off the list.

Pleased to have located and bought a decent F164 specimen, now freed from its NGC slab (MS64, No 1754587-007 slabbed 25.7.07).

They're actually quite tricky to get, especially in decent grade.

Definately is NOT Findlow thats a mistake 🙂

Seller told me it was - although it's of zero importance to me either way. I'm just delighted to have bagged the coin for a very reasonable price.

Very nice too. The 1904 is a harder one to get especially in such a high grade. Not far off BU with no issues.

Neat acquisition.

Picked up this amongst a bag of otherwise junk and modern stuff yesterday. Slight upgrade for me and always nice to get one of the scarcer ones:

1875 H Penny, Dies 8 + J, F85 I believe:
