Jamaica (again) Has Anybody Seen Currency 1882 London Mint Pennies?

Recommended Posts

I have been trying to run down instances of this 1882 Penny, evidently struck at London (or perhaps at Heaton with omitted "H"). I have had for some while a PCGS slabbed VF35 but just purchased from the Spink Auction today an MS63 NGC slabbed.

Neither have any sign of weak or erased "H", but I have previously tried to track other instances of verified 1882 "No H" pennies. I believe that the Ford and Remick collections had these but can't seem to get information on the internet. Can anybody help with these or other citations?

These were possibly struck to test out the new electrical pressing equipment the Mint was converting to, probably the reason why Heatons got the exclusive contract for pennies that particular year.

No, that struck for Jamaica in 1882.

I have a .pdf of the auction of the Remick Collection from Spink (their site is a disgrace but notionally you should be able to view the lots on their website).

Lot 1102 (in part III, auctioned January 2007) is a proof 1882 Jamaica penny with the note that 'This date and mint-mark was only struck as a proof. With note by Remick "V.Rare"'.

If anyone has a .pdf with high-resolution images or knows how to get the Spink site to work I'd be very interested either way.

Thanks for that bit; I also would like to get such. I think his specimen was that from the Arielle collection then sold at Baldwin in I believe 2014. The currency 1882 "No H" is listed at 375 USD in Krause, but  maybe they were missing a "0" at the end of that value? LOL

Kraus is notorious for undervaluing foreign coins....
