Nice Watchet penny, Dave! Let us know how the scratches look in-hand but I love the portrait on this one.

Got this today. 1895 2mm with a trace of lustre around the lettering which I can't get to show on the photos. So a good VF IMO and I think it was reasonable @ £100.

Easy to check values by looking up and making comparisons with past auction results?

How much do folks think carbon or verdigris spots generally kill value or desirability?

well given the scaling up, it is only small.

Carbon spots are not too much of a problem because these impact the eye appeal only.

Verd on the other hand is a coin disease and unless treated can kill the coin (in some cases very quickly)

In my opinion the value of a coin goes down 70% on UNC grade coins with verd. On low grade coins its value goes down by 10% or so. The higher the grade the more the loss of value. Coins with verd dont pass easily through grading houses but ones with Carbon spots will generally not be turned down. I have a MS 65 RB penny of 1870 with carbon spots and it cost over £500 to source. I also have a 1870 (say UNC) penny with verd that I sourced for £ 80.I hope this helps

Yepp I saw that T dog.

Nothing that a splash of Verdicare won't sort.

I really don't think these are rare.Like YH 1895 or 1912 h.

From the 50's coins have been called rare when they are really not.

My grandfather (dads side)pulled hundreds of "rare" coins from circulation...worth diddly.

The coin looks like it could be easily treated. It is well worth the money. Good find. GVF for me

Peter "I really don't think these are rare. Like ...... 1912 h".

Can't really agree there Peter. A quick search shows there are currently 120 1912H's in all grades on Ebay compared to 9 1895 2mm. Similalry LC has auctioned 40+ high grade 1912H since 2003 but only 10 or so 1895 2mm. I'd say that about shows the difference in scarcity.
