Going thru a number of 1859 Canadian Large Cents I just acquired and have been looking through the Haxby Catalog of the Canadian 1859 Large Cent (https://www.vickycents.com/) I could use some confirmation on what I think I have. Thanks!

This first coin has something funny with the '1'. Is that a repunch or did it just get smushed? Also, does this look like a low '9'?

Next I'm wondering what's going on with the '9', it seems very large to me almost like it's a wide 9.

Now is this one a double punched '9' or just corrosion/wear?

Last one: Is there something funky with the 9 or is that just corrosion/wear?

You'll get better results if you post both sides of the coin, there are many markers on the obv that would narrow your search.

And maybe tell us what you think you have (since you're asking for confirmation?)

Like Wade says you need to post both sides and have clear pics to get verification of these coins.

Based on what I can see of the first coin, I believe it is reverse E10. The 1 looks like it did get smushed, as there is no re-punching of the 1 on reverse E10. The obverse could be 8 or 8a. It would be helpful to see good full obverse and reverse photos of each coin.

Ok, let's try this again without the covers & better lighting, both sides. I want an idea of what to look for as I have another 9 1859 coins that I would like to identify for myself. Thanks for the help so far.

You are correct about coin one. I looked up the word "smushed" and found it the coin-collecting technical term section of the 1859 edition of the OED (Oxford English Dictionary), with a print of that exact 1 in the description. It says it's the result of a cent getting smashed and the 1 gets crushed - voila ! smushed.

Some worn ones are almost impossible to identify, especially if leaf 9 is very worn, and there are no die cracks. After years of revisiting the site, I still have 9 I can't figure out.
