A few of my favorite world overdates

Hi! I haven't posted here for a while. I specialize in world overdates—does anybody here collect them? While all my overdates are listed in Krause, there are no visual clues as to the markers; I had to do the research myself. Here are a few of my favorites; perhaps this visual reference will help other collectors. :)

 

 

Australia 1933/1932 Penny

In this overdate, I believe the whole date was rehubbed, not just the last digit.

Sweden 5 Öre 1858/7

Very interesting collection. Great photography too. I have never looked at any of my coins for them. In fact I have never even checked most of my US coins for overdates.

Thanks! :) I searched for US overdates for a while, but they are very difficult.

The easiest overdates to find appear to be large cents, but I've never spotted any.

Thanks! I have more, such as this Denmark 1902/802 1 Øre. The date is tiny, but you can see the underlying 8.

If anyone has pictures of their overdates, please post them! :grin:

 

Wow! Great photos of some great examples! I hope to see more in this thread

I love overdates. I used to have a US collection and later moved on to other collecting subjects. Good stuff.

Very impressed with the first set of photos!

 

I have a 1761/1758 Swiss gold quarter ducat with a spectacular overdate.

Someday I'll liberate it from my safe deposit box, take a few closeup photos and add it to this thread.

:yes: Your 1920/10 is a better grade; it looks XF+ to my eyes.

Apparently, many of these Belgium overdates have two versions; one with the Flemish obv (Belgie), and another with the French (Belgique)

The Belgium overdates have a modest premium in Krause, but I'm unsure about the 1920/10--perhaps the mintage is higher on the variety?

 

Belgium is a good country to look for overdates, since nary a dealer cares about them. :lol: Great to meet other collectors who do!

Here is the 5c 1906/5 Belgique and 1905/4 Belgie; my 1905/4 is a similar grade to your 1920/10.

I found an interesting overdate at a show today that's also an error. At first, I thought this coin was damaged, until I noticed the weak rim opposing the clip (arrows). Maybe a second center hole partially overlapped the planchet? The size seems close, and the "blakesley effect" suggests this isn't PMD.

Here is a common variety; I have found several of the 1904/804 and 1902/802 at shows. Technically, it's not a real overdate, since "1802" wasn't a date in use. Since the date is so small, I'm guessing a wrong digit was used, which later had to be corrected? [umm]

 

the 9/8 is visibly protruding on the lower half of the 9.

According to this source, the premium is small.

This is another bargain bin find. Despite the small size of this Belgian cent, the 9/8 is easy to see. I cannot see the 01/99, but I'll assume it's the documented overdate.

This coin grades around XF. According to Krause, this one has a modest premium
