nova scotia one cent obverses

Recommended Posts

Not quite British but close enough - I've been looking at the pattern cents of Nova Scotia recently - the obverse dies used were the same as the British halfpenny - and I've been trying to work out which dies were used.

Any thoughts appreciated - I thought it would be easier to count berries and leaves.
