Alright. I feel as though I may have found a new variety for the 1899 Large cent. I think I'll call it the... 1899 Snaz. JK :p
But this one really is different, it seems to have a different second 9. I have included pictures along with enlarged date pictures. please give me your opinions. Or heck, maybe it's been found already and I'm just a dork.
It is most noticeable on the bottom part of the second 9, you can tell it is thinner then all others.
And where the 9 swings around (this is going to be hard to explain) to the front of the 9 it is closer to the top circle.

Well.. There is definitely a difference in the two "9"s

My 1899 Large cent looks like your "skinny" one.

Snaz--interesting to see those two large cents.
I don't have an 1899 to compare, but I assembled both dates from your coins to compare.
The way the bottom loop on the 9 ends looks different to me as well.

"I feel as though I may have found a new variety for the 1899 Large cent."

fyi - this variety was listed as early as the 2006 issue of the CCC Price Guide for Canadian Coins.

Looking at my Charest's catalogue, the second coin is a variety called "large 9".
It doesn't carry much premium to the normal coin. But perhaps the first one is different than standard too?

Oh that's awesome! Can you guys let us know some more about it. Is there a mintage #? Or how does the price change?

I'm not sure if the "large 9" is just one die, because the values are somewhat similar. Value in Charest for "Normal" in F15 is $4 vs. $4.50 for the "large 9".
