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"
Left eBay as the place is a shambles now and have opened my own online shop .. pop in and seen my stuff for sale
