5kop1779EM - common date but different


Recommended Posts


This lot # 7294 described as 1779/6 overdate. There is, however also a 7 included with certainty. The overdate is thus 1779/7/6.

See picture above, click on upper rim to enlarge.

But I bought the coin for its eagle.

Below see the 1778 with its typical thin wings (common/abundant)

Below that one there is another 1778 with different (transitional) wings (rare)

Below that my now acquired 1779 with identical transitional wings (let's say scarce)

Last but not least the normal 1779 eagle with its broad wings(common/abundant)

Found one! ;)



Hi Alex, congrats! I think this is a pretty rare eagle variant :ninja: . I presented mine separately in an earlier thread. Sigi

P.S.: Is the 8 of the date "clean" or could it be an overdate?
