Hello everyone, sorry for being a bit of a nag about this topic, but I'm sort of anxious about this issue being sorted out. So forgive me if this has become tiresome.
I initially identified the 1932 nickel varieties in this post as "near 2" and "far 2" because that's what they're called in the latest Charlton guide, and also what they're referred to throughout this previous forum topic thread: http://www.coincommunity.com/forum/...IC_ID=77970.
Also an article scan in that thread(shown beneath) refers to them as "near" and "far."
In the current thread, it's been brought up by Zonad that these varieties should be referred to as "High 2" and "Low 2," which is how they were referred to as in the accompanying picture in my first post. I really don't care whether it's called "high and low" or "near and far," though it'd be nice to have something of an agreement or consensus on it.
Now, having always believed that there are two varieties of 1932 nickel, it's recently been brought up by littlemoney that there are in fact three varieties. But what is this third variety?
Now, I've posted two of the coins I have in this thread already. Forgive me for reposting them again. One is clearly a high/near variety:
and the other is clearly a low/far variety:
My initial question about what variety the coin I first posted was doesn't really matter anymore.
What I've been confused by and want to have cleared up in this thread:
1. What are the 1932 nickel varieties called? "Near and far" or "high and low"?
2. Is there a third variety? If so, how is it distinguished and what is it called?
