  1. Thanks mrbadexample. When you say damaged do you mean; deliberately, miss-struck or wear and tear? Would the three have a flat top if it was a genuine 3? Do I need to look with proper magnification? Thanks Steve
  2. Thanks Azda for the welcome! I've attached some images. The condition is far from good, but it's more the anomaly of the date and Victoria being of interest. Will be interested to hear peoples' thoughts. Regards Steve
  3. Hi all, this is my first post having joined on behalf of my father-in-law, who is hoping to find a bit of assistance and advice around some of the coins he has casually collected over the years. His first unusual one is he has a 1836 Threepenny bit but with Victoria's head on it rather than William's. Could this be a test coin or a fake? Hope these type of questions are acceptable in the forum and whether it's OK to ask further queries around the other coins he can't find answers to. Regards Steve
