1888 Double 8 Canadian large cent?

Postby KEN66 » Sun Mar 31, 2019 10:19 am

I can use some help on this 1988 large cent I recently purchased. The one is doubled in the date also the last to 8's are also doubled. Its hard to tell by the photos. How would I classified it? I graded EX fine but really don't know. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

There are many 188 repunches with 1, 2, 3, or all 4 repunched with nice offsets. The second 8 is always doubled because it came off the matrix.. There is a small premium for those with other digits R/P'd ... the best being the middle 8 corrected lower left with the bead punch, probably to stop a D/C.
