Just looked up the prices for this F. Indochina 1 Cent of 1923 - wow, looks like I got lucky again with a coin, if I am not mistaken the book prices go F 40.00 VF 90.00 AND XF 180:00

 

Mintage: 1,079,000 A=Paris mint

 

French-Indochina: Formerly Annan, Tonkin, Laos, Cambodia.

Sadly I think your is KM12.3 rather than KM12.1,

Mintage of 35,524,000 - values 0.50 in F, 0.75 in VF $1.50 in XF.

Not 100% positive though.

KM 12.1

(Couldn't find better image)

 

It only lists the dates 1922 and 1923 for this design.

Krause 2009 has KM 12.1 (being the 1908-1939 type) as having two privy marks below the value.

Krause has 1923 with two privy marks as the rare type.

 

KM12.3 being issued only in 1922 and 1923 has a 'thunderbolt' below value.

The picture of the 1923 is KM 12.3

Krause has this as the common type.

 

The Zinc 1 Cent is KM 24.1

 

These KM numbers often seem to change - and I do have trouble keeping up with them myself!

Looks like I misread my book anyway - the way it explains it, we're looking for a torch privy mark for the rare variety, what I have is the thunderbolt and the other design is for the 21.4 arrghhh... heh never mind, still got a nice Hapa haneri

 

Win some lose some!

Rare coins do turn up from time to time, I have an Ecuador 2 Sucres 1973 and a Vietnam 50 Dong 1975 both bought from the junk box of a usually very knowlegable dealer - my advice...... keep looking!
