sandy3075 Posted March 3, 2009 Report Share Posted March 3, 2009 Got a few South African and Southern Rhodesia coins today and found a few worth showing off . Here are the three tickeys First is the 1940 one. It appears that the 4 in the date had been recut, scan may be non-decisive but it is visible under the magnigying glass. Another interesting detail is that the period after the date is pretty close to the 0. . Second is a darker toned 1943. it has the uneven coin cabinet toning (as if laid on the velvel for a while) This and the next coin seems to be of different dies based on the proximity of the period after the date to 3 - close period on the left coin and further out on the right. And the last is this weakly struck specimen that provides for an unusual "phantom" effect of the lack of KG (engraver's initials) (right) where on the regular one KG are clearly seen (left) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
