Re: 1994 50 cent - Dot in "G"

The “Dot in the G” has been recognized for quite a few years but has never gained much popularity. It is a die chip and is catalogued as a variety in the 1994 listing on this website. Of interest is the doubling on the denticles and lettering visible on the photo.... if it is not a trick of the ligh...

Re: 1949 50 cents

Hi Rick,
I knew this coin looked familiar (the squashed tail of the 9) and we had talked about it. Should have mentioned the 4/4 at that time, although it is a little hard to see.

Re: 1949 50 cents

On the 194x series of the 50 cents the date digits were entered manually into each die (except for 1940). For 1949 there were 40 reverse dies and so 40 different date configurations. On this particular die, the doubling on top of the 4 was done (repunched) on one of the punch/hammer strikes (up to 4...

Sorry, although I have several different dies with a die crack that are similar to your coin, I cannot positively identify it. :o

Re: 1949 50¢ Hoof over 9, doubled second 9, die crack between 4 & 9

The 9 in the 1949 hoof-over 9 is actually a triple punch 9/9/9...In later die states there is the start of a die crack between the 4 and the 9. The hoof over is actually a die chip that deveops after the die has been used for a while. . Editing....the 1949 is a wide date and more pictures can be fo...

Re: 1949 50¢ Hoof over 9, doubled second 9, die crack between 4 & 9

!9943 A Die Crack between hoof to 3 to rim is fairly common with quite a few different dies.... is there any evidence of die cracks to the right of the unicorn's leg that would allow a more definitive classification to a Zoell number or whatever. 1944 Is a medium wide date (I find that it is more re...

Re: 1951 50 cent v1 in the ear

I cannot get the pictures to display but I strongly suspect that what you are seeing are die clash marks in the King's ear. That are quite common in this vintage of the George VI 50c coins.

Re: Looking For Images Of Date 1943 Double Die 3

I am still looking for this particular repunch. Doesn't look like it is available in the GTA.
Rick, you were going to show it to Ken Potter.... any feedback?

Re: 1940 - 50 cents - Hoof through date

I have never seen a 1937 die crack hoof though date. The only thing you might find is a die clash through the crown.

Re: 1946 -different gaps between 4 & 6 in date

Hi Bill.....now that I have updated to an IPad, I can input to this website.
anybody that is interested in George VI 50 cent varieties should acquire Charltons 68th edition for 2014. The Variety section in the back covers these coins in some detail.

Re: 1946 -different gaps between 4 & 6 in date

Since the last two date digits were punched into each separate die for the 1941 through 1949 50 cents, there are as many different punch spacing varieties as there are reverse dies. Mintage figures indicate that there were thirty reverse dies used in 1946 so there are thirty variations of the 4 and ...
