Its funny a short while back I remember Mike showing us his new found f164 and saying just how hard it is to find one above EF , and I must admit I was thinking at the time that my own example was only about VF, then low a behold this turns up .  A few bag marks , but for £23 .

Very nice, Terry, and what a bargain. Have you got a pic of the reverse as well?

I thought for a minute that you were showing an f164a, then i realised that it was not one. Damn, that would be a great find.

My F164a was on here posted some years back,  it was better than my F164 until this latest find.

In grades EF+ I would have thought that it must be about fifty times rarer than than the commoner Freeman 166. Finding a BU example would be challenging !

I remember these 1908 varieties when they were in circulation the 164 & 168 were of similar abundance in low grade, about three to one, funny that.

Not for me Mike, the penny lots at DNW soar way beyond both estimate and budget. :lol:

And If I was, I'd not be telling everyone. :ph34r:

You've told everyone now Jon.  That one wont be cheap. :D

Glad I've already got one, Terry. 

I've seen it evidenced a few times just how well read this forum is by non members (and probably members who never post).

Not to mention those eye wateringly huge buyer premiums.

By a country mile the best I've seen. None of the known others better than (at best) NVF, and most sub fine.

That's a 164, Jon. We'd just changed the narrative slightly to the 164A.

Ah that one. I must admit I've never looked at it before. Yes that is a very nice specimen and now takes first place of the ones I've seen. 

ETA: the obverse side anyway.

Thanks Pete. It's here

It's the type of photo that isn't easy to download and upload unless you can cope with a small image, so I've linked directly to the post. Obviously you then click on the image to enlarge it.

No, that one had escaped my attention, Terry. As for a perfect one........probably not, but you just never know.

Coincidentally,  I have recently submitted it to NGC for conservation (along with another coin) and am awaiting its return.

Hopefully it will arrive within a month or so...
