    I picked this 1933 penny up a while back now , but forgot at the time to share it with you . It would be nice if it were the real Mc Coy, but a pretty good modified example I think .

    Acquired this 18.60 dot penny recently [ Gouby 1860Sx ], which also has the E in ONE trying to turning into an F [ Its on Richards Dot penny list ] When I received the coin I had a really good look at it and noticed something else . The obverse side also has a central cut ribbon, and smaller re'entered colon after F: D : Making it a [ Gouby 1860 Vc ] as well . So three separate errors on one penny ?

    I think the H must have been added seperatelly to each working die as I have found 1881 coins with it positioned all over the place.
  5. I would have thought that in those days the letter repair punches would have been hand made , and therefore every one would be very slightly different , also when the working dies were repaired the depth of the strike would vary in accordance with how hard the punch was struck.

    1912 penny which I call - Titanic on the horizon. I first discovered a very worn example back in 2011 , and first mentioned it on the forum back in 2016. I've been looking for a really good example for the last 11 years, and only now has an uncirculated example finally turned up. It actually looks like a plume of smoke rising from an old coal fired steam ship going over the horizon, and being a 1912 penny its association with the Titanic is obvious.

    I would have said it's a degraded E on the die, repunched with another E ? especially as the P has also deteriorated.

    I would also say small date.

    New Victoria Copper Penny reverse ?

    I've increased the number of pixels and increased the size as much as the picture will allow if it's of any help.
