1840 Thistle Token with recessed Edge Reeding ??? Thoughts ?

Hello all, I picked up this 1840 Nova Scotia Bank 1 Penny that seems to have been fed into some sort of "reeding" machine ? Note how the rim edge is split evenly with reeding ridges at the bottom of the "channel". The coins doesn't look damaged otherwise and the rim is smooth and even it seems. Any ...

Thanks so much for the information. I actually went online to try and order Jim's new Vol 2, but site was not accepting paykents yet, so will try back later. In the meantime, is there information about the population or scarcity of this die pair ? And Cheers for the book reference. Bill (Radius88)

Die break thru 4 leaves on 1909 Cent

Hello All, Found this 1909 Cent with a nice long die crack/break thru several leaves from the coin edge above leaf 14, into the leaf and then moves left thru leaves 13-12- and 11. Close to being a retained cud possibly. Just posted to share. Thanks and Onward.

1859 N9 - Another Possible DP9 ? What do you think ?

Hello, Here is yet another 1859 N9 example that I have that is also not noted in the varieties of DP9 listed. Does it look like it is a DP9 or again, something else caused by damage or metal flake off ? Opinions please. And Thanks again.

1859 N9 w/ a small DP 9 ??? - Opinions please

Hello , I found this 1859 Cent with what looks like maybe a DP 9 that is not pictured on the site. What are your opinions on this coin ? Could it be a hit on the "9" and metal slice fold over ? Or a minor DP9 ? There are so many minor varieties to this date, I wanted to ask the community. Thanks alw...

Again thank you for the information. I had understood much of it but you helped to clarify it a lot. I went to the link and saw the photos. I also have over 100 1888's with several MS examples of the 888 variety. (Pic attached). Appreciate the direction.

Re: 1888 Cent with DP Middle "8"

Thanks for the update and reference for the 1888;s. Is there a specific middle 8 dp that is more "doubled" than most others ? Picture is one example. And stay well.
