    I thought this 1926 ME I picked up recently for £250 was quite a lucky find.

    Thanks for that Michael , I knew that he was a Nepolionic Veteran, but because I found the picture on a French site, I assumed he was French . As you probably know he was pictured with a woman who I assume was his wife [ Picture below] . I used the picture because my wife thought there to be a resemblance to me 😟 . I do hope though that I don't look as grouch as he dose . Ironically my son in law has two ancestors who fought at Trafalgar , one of whom who lost a leg and survived , I myself had a three times Gr Grandfather named Thomas Mason who fought in the American War of Independence and was with Conwallis when he finally surrendered at Yorktown in 1781. He must have started his military career when he was recruited into the Third Reg. of Foot [The Buffs] in London, probably taking the Kings Shilling while drunk, as he then absconded only to be recaptured by a bounty hunter and sent to the Savoy Prison [ The converted old Palace which was where the Savoy Hotel now stands ] He went on to rise up to the rank of Sergeant and serve for twenty years.

    The one thing I have noticed that seems to be present on all genuine Victorian copper pennies, is the wider tooth under the 4 in the date , which shows up very nicely on your Picture Jerry oops make that Ian 😁

    The Ae has the 0 directly over tooth 13 as shown by Gouby. My coin is exactly 13 teeth which is the same as the Gouby Ae . But your coin has the 0 slightly to the left of tooth 13 so you could say its a 12.3/4 tooth width and is unlisted Maybe I'm nit picking as the difference is miniscule , but there must have been two dies as in my example the 7 is high in the exergue and in yours its lower down below the other digits in the date I trust I make myself perfectly obscure.
