1938 Swiss 20 Rappen variety


Recommended Posts

Hey Coinpeople,


Have any of you noticed two distinct bead size types for the 1938 Switzerland 20 rappen coin? The large bead variety (the earlier one?) has perimeter beads that are so large that they forced indentations in the tops of a few of the letters on the obverse of the coin (similar in size to the beads from coins issued before it). The small bead variety has beads similar in size to those found on the 1939 issue. Does anybody have a coin book that recognizes this mid-year change that is visible to the naked eye? Has anybody else noticed it? Does anybody think it matters?


Hoping this is a documented variety situation,
