overstrike, double strike, or ?


Recommended Posts

Clear case of die deterioration. The die is starting to chip and break. This was quite common in copper coinage in the Netherlands. No overstrike though.

 

Nice find, and if you would ever sell that piece, I'm very interested :ninja:

 

Regards

Thanks, Jos. This is the first time I've run across die deterioration.

 

Unfortunately, this is the only 1823 Utrecht half cent in my collection, so I'm holdng on to it. I still have to examine many duplicate "halfjes," though. We'll see if any errors turn up along the way. :ninja:

Maybe I can replace it with a problem-free one?

 

That might be an option, you know ;)

I'm too sentimental to part with any of the coins from my father's main collection, even though I'm heartily sick of staring at Willem III's beard and eyebrows. He'd be the first to go. :ninja:

That sounds good ;)

 

Hope to hear you soon :ninja:
