    1908 F164

    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...

    Today's special date: 2nd February 2020...

    The date is correct on this specimen, the coin itself is upside down....

  5. I concur with Bernie... Looks as all legitimate F/P's look. I too have it on reverse G, paired with both obverse 6 and 7. I've seen other F/P claims with other obverse and or reverses, but I've yet to see one that I would accept as such. Not to say that they do not exist, merely that I haven't seen an example yet.

    More Pennies

    I've personally owned about 10-12 different specimens over the years. Passed on as I upgraded or just sold if not an improvement... I only recall 2 without the recut A, all the others had the recut A indentifier...

    Across the pond we would say that that makes no cents....

    more FAKES

    I had listed some lots of Halfpennies and pennies, identified by Freeman numbers and ebays' bots kicked it out as using numerical grading..... I had to change it from F number to Freeman number to get it to list....

    1861 halfpenny - Freeman 277 ?

    There are times that it looks like an obverse 6 too.... You have the coin in hand so I'll defer to your assessment. Images can be deceptive even with no deception intended....

    1861 halfpenny - Freeman 277 ?

    Image looks like a 7 & G, F-282.. Can't be sure unless it's in hand

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    Technically, by ebay policy, this listing should not be allowed, inasmuch as it is being listed with a numeric grade not assigned by an officially recognized grading service. Number two, without having the references handy, I believe a Poor-1 needs to be identifiable to some minimal degree. This coin does not fit that description .... That being said, I can appreciate the humor of the listing, as I have similarly had "world's worst coins" listed in the distant past....

    Freeman 13 inverted V for A in Victoria?

    That's always the final determinant Richard, and I erred in reading it as "inverted V instead of A".. That being said, I distinctly see a crossbar so, my amended observation is, it is not an inverted V for A, although there is a possibility that it could be an inverted V over A, reinforcing the A. A close examination with coin in hand would be the determining factor.

    Freeman 13 inverted V for A in Victoria?

    Looks like a normal A with a weak crossbar.... I've seen many like that...

    So would I. However, inasmuch as I only collect circulation strikes and do not actively pursue proofs nor patterns, I'm not losing any sleep over it.

  23. Bronze & Copper Collector


    I guess I was being redundant. As you stated, incorrect image. But the coin in question is correct...
  24. Bronze & Copper Collector


    Incorrect image.. so definitely NOT an F-164a
