New Zealand "Broken Back" shilling

Recommended Posts

Hi Coiners

I am a new member.

I have recently aquired a number of New Zealand 1 shilling coins. I have seen the reference to 1 shilling "Broken Back"1 shilling coins on the internet.

Can some one please tell or show me what this term means.


Thank you

Reverse die variety in which the right-hand part of the warrior's back is incomplete and doesn't quite touch the waist of the piupiu.





Nice info and picture. Thanks. :bthumbsup:

Hi "Constanius"


Many thanks for the info and very clear photos. I have over two hundred 1 shilling coins and will now be busy very carefully checking all of them.


Thanks again.





Probably a bit late now but I think the years it occurred in are '42, '58 and '65.
