    1972 was never released into circulation, so only proof.

    My Latest Acquisition

    if you do Lizzy.. get a 72 set. why 1935? I would go for 36, unless it is because of the crown.

    Portcullis Varieties On Decimal Penny

    the 1985 obverse, to me, seems to be different from the later ones on all the coins, text seems thinner, beads, even the strike seems different.

    2016 New Pound Coin Varieties

    some of the details at a glance would be the corners some seem more rounded, not really noted anything else.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    no no, just saying, in regards to the 1875 H fake, I can see it is fake right away, but looking at it the differences are minor so still have to check.. hence the comparison to the ME, I can see it if I had the coin Obverse side, or in a pile, but if I was handed a 1926 reverse side, I would still have to check, especially where the key marker is worn.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    it has the look of being fake, but you can't tell why. I have the same thing with the Geo V modfied effigy.. if i pick up a coin with that head I know it is one... (and usually 1927 :() but if I pick up an 1926 I spend a good while checking.. even though i can tell at a glance the 2 heads.. it just looks similar but with small changes and triggers.
