    NEW UNLISTED VARIETY of 1873 HALF-PENNY

    I recently acquired what is possibly the 5th known specimen of a Half-Penny variety, unlisted in Freeman but acknowledged by Dracott in his Half-Penny study.... An 1873 obverse 8 paired with reverse C#. What I later discovered amongst some coins that I already had, but passed over because it was not an obverse 8, was another 1873 Half-Penny with reverse C#, but paired with Obverse 7... UNKNOWN & UNLISTED till now..... See attached scans......

    Ebay fees???!!?!?!

    As a regular seller, I am sure you are aware of the following, but I restate it for the record.. There are a many added fees for additional services which, IF you use them can add up very rapidly (ie: bold, picture paks, highlighted, additional country site, etc.). On a lower priced item, these fees can vastly increase your cost percentage. These fees are less likely to be as obvious nor skew your percentages on a higher priced sale. Another factor to consider is the cost of listing and relisting items that do not sell the first time around. It's very easy to jack your costs up with little or no appreciative added value to your gross sale. The fees only serve to cut into your net profit and/or increase your expenses.

    More Pennies

    Having seen, heard of, or experienced situations such as you described, my general mantra has been: 'When you have a situation that needs professional advice, seek a professional. And even then, get a second opinion.' Unfortunately, too much gets by even the experts....

    It wasn't listed as an F-25... I missed seeing the missing colon dots though...

    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. As I stated in the beginning, I might be merely misremembering, simply incorrect, or just delusional...

    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...
