Possible Variety 1962 penny

Recommended Posts

Uploaded here is a possible 1962 penny variation , with the number 9 in the date having a truncated tail , there appears to be no tampering or altering of the number, opinions would be appreciated

That really is an odd one , there seems to be no sign of damage or tampering with the coin ?

I can’t see any obvious damage to the coin , the top of the number 9 and the top of the number 6 seem  to be slightly closer to the Britannia base than in an ordinary 1962 penny . I intend to load up some more photos soon

my thought is that it's a striking error at the Mint (misstrike) ... but if there's only the one, it's not likely to command a premium and wouldn't be considered a 'variety' as such.
