Dooly, are you trying to corner the Shield Nickel market? lol

I think the saying is get them when there on the bottom .. I wonder how many people wish they had picked there Favorited ones up when they were less in favour

Hi got one of the coins from the us today .. posted on the 11th .. Bit slow eh!



It is a 1869 wide date with a IIb reverse


and this is what i saw in the sellers picture.. as far as i can tell the 18 of the date is re-punched to the north with the top of the showing and possibly the base of the 1 showing on both sides on the shank (picture not showing the left hand side very well)
I have been through Fletcher and cannot find anything on this coin .. F-102 has a north RP on the 18 but the top of the 8 is not as near to the ball .. F-108 has almost an identical die crack through the 8-6-9 as mine but RP on this one is 69 south.. So in conclusion and up for discussion here is ?? have i Cherrypicked a unrecorded RPD from Ebay ? or is there some other answer to this coin



Die crack markers in blue (I can find no die cracks on the reverse)


The only marker i can find on the reverse is ? Die polishing marks to the bottom (marked in yellow) and a very thin to the C almost like the so called "rat tail"

UPDATE: well what a hassle this one has been .. seller took my offer on this one then told me that they refused to send it over the pond to me !

nicely a forum member offered to have it sent to them in the US and now i have heard it was posted this morning so should be with me sooooooon!!

they said it looked ok .. which was nice, things us collectors will do to acquire a coin eh!

Well this one came supper quick this morning 5* to the seller .. and you guessed it it's a Cherry

my picture


the cherry is a RPD on the 2 in a north direction


the closest i can find is F-14 but that is punched on the 8 & 2 and is further away from the ball .. so another unlisted one ? we will see

Obverse Die markers for this RPD are die cracks marked in blue


Reverse Die markers are .. Die cracks marked in blue and Rim cud marked in red

That's a nice find. As far as I can tell from your photos, this variety has not been listed anywhere yet.
