Hello Coin People! This is my first post, so apologies if I am putting this in the wrong forum. I also did a quick search, but couldn't find a clear answer to my issue. I have an Indian Head penny. But, unlike other pennies I have seen this penny has the Indian head on both sides of the coin and each side has a different year. One side shows the penny marked as 1887 with the Indian Head. The other side also has an Indian Head marked as 1904. Any advice or information about this coin? Is this unusual? I'll try and get some better quality photos shortly.
I'm wondering if anyone can help me; I have 3 1986 £2 coins. sorry if I waffle on a bit at this point... From what I have read on a website (http://www.coins-of-the-uk.co.uk/dec2p.html) .... "As the edge inscriptions are stamped on the edge of blank coins before striking, they can (and do) appear either way up in theoretically equal quantities". This is where I need help on two of my coins the writing is one way and on the third the writing is the other way upBUT on the third coin not only is the writing the other way up from the first two it reads/spelt differently from the first two... 1st two coins: XIII COMMONWEALTH GAMES SCOTLAND 1986 + The third coin: XIII COMMONWEALTHGAMES SCOTLAND 1986 + Can you help or offer advice in this matter?
