    Halfpenny ID check

    Could be 11+L if you like. LOL !

    Opinions requested.... VIGTORIA

    Does look like a G, pictures of the coin Obv & Rev could give your coin more weight. (no pun intended)

    All examples of 2+C that I have seen have the die crack evidence, through "A" of "VICTORIA"

    Well Done ! Like Hens Teeth !
  7. https://www.colincooke.com/collections/oxford_vicbunhead.html Lot 140,
  8. Yes maybe, Here is another example of coins that are definitely the same but appear to look different. Pictures can be very deceptive. Freeman 341 (16+P)
  9. Rechecked, not a scratch but a fine die crack ! I concur, it is a different coin, but surely struck from the same pair of dies, probably struck within 10's of striking. Thank you all for your opinions. Happy New Year !
  10. How about the horizontal minor scratch about 1mm above and to the right of the rose. I don't think this is an impression from the die.
  11. Freeman 14 reverse
  12. I noticed this Freeman 14 penny that is to be auctioned by Heritage on January 21st. The coin is slabbed and graded as MS67. I am almost certain that it was my coin, but now appears different, much brighter, some minor blemishes removed and some details such as minor scratches possibly polished away. https://coins.ha.com/itm/great-britain/world-coins/great-britain-victoria-penny-1860-ms67-red-and-brown-ngc-/a/3089-32804.s?ic4=ListView-ShortDescription-071515 I have attached pictures of the coin that I used to have in my collection, What do others think ? Bernie...
  13. I second that ! I just hope that the coins that I have been waiting for to turn up do not come into their possession. Also this company do like to make rather large profits !
