    More Pennies

    Correct, neither upper or lower curve of the 3 would be considered to be open..

    Ebay's BEST Offerings

    You're correct Pete, inasmuch as it was the N in ONE... Reverse D both uprights point to teeth Reverse E the uprights point to a gap Unfortunately, as I indicated in my original post, if the border is so worn that the position of the 1 cannot be determined, the same problem will probably exist regarding the uprights of the N.

    Ebay's BEST Offerings

    Unless I am misremembering, I vaguely recall reading something about an alternative method of identifying an F-169. Regretfully I do not have any way of determining my original source of that information. I believe that it might have had something to do with the position of one of the N's in PENNY. Unfortunately, in many instances, if the date was too worn to determine the position of the 1, the same situation existed for the lettering in PENNY.

    Opinions requested.... VIGTORIA

    Thank you for your feedback.... That was my opinion too... Too low grade to be sure, however looking more like a G than a C.. and Unable to rule the possibility out.. For the moment it will fill the box, at least until I can find an affordable definite specimen...
  11. Is it wishful thinking on my part or does the C in VICTORIA look like a G?? Your opinions humbly requested... Thank you (1862 penny)

    Stuff to Make Us Laugh

    For those that remember Groucho and his show 'You Bet Your Life', where if you said the secret word you got $100 ($50 each contestant). Let us not forget the contestant who tried to collect the bonus by saying "THE SECRET WORD". I don't know if they ever collected the $100 or even if the segment ever aired, but it does make for interesting conversation and is somewhat apropos...
