Thanks for the interest and comments. It's obvious there are a lot of enthusiastic penny collectors out there. I'll try to provide a higher resolution scan of the 1913 obverse within the 500k file size limit

A higher resolution scan which may help. Just looking at the scan it looks like the king's mo is fully struck.

A clearer bigger pic would mean certainty.

A higher resolution scan of the reverse.

I'd say your 1913 is 1+A - the reverse is clearly so, and if you look at GRA:BRITT on the obverse and compare it with the 1915, you'll see there is a bigger space between A:B and the I of BRITT is to a space not a tooth.

£3.75 inc. postage from (it's not easy being) a dealer...…………...should I feel guilty? 🧐

Nice find.

Someone obviously decided that 100 years of circulation just wasn't enough for this poor 1866 penny ! It actually feels pretty similar to an old size decimal 50 pence in the hand.

I was pleased to spot this penny in a dealers £8 each 'rummage tray' at the Midland Coin Fair today. One for Richards site; perhaps the second best known ?

Looks better in the picture than in hand IMO. The close-up is a better approximation to reality.

Domestic relations are an all-time low despite a gushing Valentine's card yesterday. The new bathroom budget has been blown again on Hiram Brown's F76. I'm in raptures about it but the other half is unimpressed.

Nice one Richard , if you keep this up you'll have to sell the entire collection to buy the next coin up the price ladder.  :D
