Hi Sidney, like to ask your opinion as you are the expert in Straits Settlements coin. Recently I found this 50 cent coin on the observe it show some thread of reeded edges. Is this PMD or PMJ? The shape of it is directly opposite of the ' 0 ' position of the reverse. If is a PMJ, the area there should be compressed isn't it?

I believe the edge markings are from being stored and moved about in bags with other coins.

Feeling happy with this new find for my collection, at a MS62 grade. High grades Kg Edward VII 50cts series are hard to come by.

 

The 1907H "H" represents Heaton & Sons Mint, and the other without "H" is the Royal Mint.

 

Straits Settlements Kg Edward VII
Denomination : 50cts
Year : 1907H
Composition : Silver .900 fine
Mintage : 2,666,667 (Mintage includes both "H" and non "H" mintage)

Grade - MS62 (Population 1 pc. graded by PCGS / 4 pcs by NGC)

As always, gorgeous. Do you happen to know the mintage ratio between the mints?

 

Tried finding out the ratio, but could not. It would be great if it is avail.

Beautiful coin.

 

Does the "H" have the same meaning on Canadian large cents?

 

The "H" does have the same link to the Canadian coinage. Coins between the years 1858 - 1907 were minted in England either by the Royal Mint of London or the Heaton Mint in Birmingham with the "H" letter mint-mark.
