Recently bought as S.2775.

I have as S.2773, Bull 292b/23.

Bull comments Rev "Colons, most unusual".  Are there many about?

No idea as I haven't looked, but presumably only this reverse die or maybe an unknown second one. It's a die match to the one in Bull once you have sorted out the double striking.

As a tun 3a1 variety it's bound to be rare as there are huge numbers of single stop dies with only a handful of 4 pellet stop dies to add. I would have thought the survival rates would be similar to other die pairs unless there were indications of a rapid disintegration (or a mint fresh hoard came to light), but don't know what that number is.

There were examples in the North Yorks Moors and Tooze collections in DNW's archives.

Thanks for the response Rob and the Noonan's/North Yorkshire Moors collection reference.  They had some fantastic pieces in their 20 January 2020 auction.  Their Lot 899 (Bull 292b/23) just being one of many different coins.
