The 1911 Geo V large cent was minted without the "Dei Gratia" that had been on coins since Provincial coinage. People didn't like it, so it was returned for the 1912 and later mintages.
We really can't tell you anything without a photo. What you describe can be due to any number of reason, including someone in a garage or basement with any number of tools, including a large hammer and a block of wood.... and with a second coin.
Mmmmm ... I can't see how to edit my post from above so I'll just add to it. I see that you have the figures "150-200k" in your post. Does that mean that the coins you have are EACH in the $150,000 to 200,000 range. Or is that the number of coins you have or is that your estimated value fo...
Value is determined by the BUYER, not a book or TRends sheet. For anyone to recommend an auctioneer, you would have to give us an idea of what you have and in what grade. Some TPG's are tougher on certain denominations/monarchs than other TPG's and some TPG's specialize in certain denominations, esp...

Yes, it does look like a counterfeit and it could be just the photo, but even the fields look off. It's a little strange that they would copy a fairly semi-common coin .. many of the earlier Vickies are fairly scarce. However, if there is a profit to be made, Chinese counterfeits fill up the dead sp...
It doesn't look like a brockage or strike through. Is the top part of the coin recessed, because it's not linear. Without better photo, I'd say it was a lamination separation from the planchet (part of the coin missing).
Yes, 1888's are riff with varieties. You can have 1, 2, or all three 8's repunched in different ways and the last digit was handpunched into each working die, so its position varies from die to die. High, low, near, far are all pretty common.

I see no problem .. if you own something, you can do with it what you want. My personal opinion is that the vast vast majority (did I say vast strong enough?) of anything that the RCM puts out is numismatically worthless and severely overpriced. If you want to collect RCM crapola, that's fine .. but...
I've got an old Digital Blue QX-5 video scope for viewing coins on the computer screen and/or sending them to friends. My scope for the desk is an old Orion 10/30X and I love it .. but it doesn't have a built-in light. I use 2 desk lamps shown from different directions to eliminate shadows. If you a...
