All smiles, ear to ear :yahoo:One of the best find after a long time. Straits 1935 Kg George V, 20cts in superb BU conditions. This may be a common year in the series, but in its pristine BU conditions difficult.

 

There are 2 variation to this coin and it lies in the year. One with a flat 3 and the other a round 3 to the year. Prices for both are the same. Searching round to find out why 2 varieties. Any answers from collectors here?

 

Some stats here for all.

Diameter : 23 mm

Weight : 5.422g
Mintage : 1,000,00 (For both varieties)
Grade - BU Raw (To be graded)

Great looking coin Sidney. I would assume they punched the date into the dies in a manner similar to what the US Mint did - rather than have it in the hub. And on different dies someone used a different set of punches. Just a guess mind you.

Not even a guesstimate of how many were minted?

Sorry! Not even a guesstimate of its mintage. Wish knew. Searching for answers has drawn me to a blank. If I ever find any answers, i will definitely post to share.

Add a raw 1903 Raised "B" 1 Dollar Silver. Conditions from EF - GEF. Do refer to "Poor Authentication of Straits 1903 Raised "B" post to identify its difference from the normal copy.
