Hi guys, could you just confirm for me which obverse you think that this coin is. Thanks, Ian

As everyone knows, not my speciality, but using Secret Santa's website I think it has to be Gouby C1? Beaded border, eye face vertical, thicker border and linear circle at the left ends by second tooth, not fourth.

It’s the standard beaded penny obverse, Freeman 1, Gouby C as used with Freeman 1, 6 and 7 pennies.

Thanks Paddy & Jerry. I had it in my head that it could be a Freeman 1*. It is a nice coin, but not cheap.

I don't think it can be a Freeman 1* - the eye is definitely a Freeman 1 style (Gouby C). The only debate is whether it is Gouby C or C1. Using @secret santa site, the slightly broader rim and the linear line ending short on the left is why I think it is C1, not C. But I will bow to greater knowledge - any other input?

On obverse C1

the 6th to 11th beads below the bust touch the bust whereas on C they do not.
