Thank you both for the warm welcome and detailed information.

I googled the 1872 Straits and come up with this (you were right, the closer look at the appears to be 1872):


Year 1872 1872H

Mintage - 5,770,000

Note only proof Small H below neck

V.Fine - 20

E.Fine - 110

Uncirculated - 470

Proof 7500 Rare


I needed to google meaning of the each column. How do you grade those coins, because we are not sure if those coins would fit at least to "Very fine".

The Straits cent would grade between "About Good" and "Good", which would be several grades below "Very Fine".


The grading system goes:




About Good


Very Good


Very Fine

Extremely Fine

About Uncirculated



(Proofs are specially made collector versions with special dies and usually stronger strikes)
