A pair of Victorias I picked up today, the first an 1887 halfpenny. I believe the other to be an 1889 sixpence.
Excellent pair!

A trio to add on here, although I'm not certain any of them get quite all the way down to lowball status.

Canada 1880 5 Cents -





The wear on this one's a bit uneven, but it probably couldn't have stood much more before the date would've become unreadable.

Haiti 1817 12 Centimes -





Again, the wear's inconsistent, with the portrait being almost obliterated, while some design detail on the reverse isn't too far gone.

Spain 1785 Real (Croat) -





Once more, the portrait's very smooth, but the date's strong and the central area of the reverse has held up pretty well. However, enough of it's worn away that it's a full gram short of its original specified weight.

Colligo ergo sum

I don't think this one quite falls into lowball territory, but it's worn really smooth

I collect lowball Canadian 25-cent pieces. Here's one I picked up from a CCF member recently in an ICCS holder. In hand, you can make out the 5 as the last digit - 1885 Fair 2 is the grade. It's clearly not poor, but any more wear would make the date unreadable.

I'm still waiting to see a PR01 Roosy dime or Washington quarter. They are true workhorses.

I've got a few that I think will fit nicely here. Not sure what they would grade.

I have several of those 5 and 10 milliemes in similar condition. Under the right lighting the date can often be seen.

There's usually no chance of getting the mintmark, though...


As for the British pennies - fairly common in this grade or only slightly better; the recessed date was one of the last places to wear off.

I have a set with almost all the dates in the 1860-1894 range (though most of them aren't quite as worn as yours - then again, none of them have any obvious tape marks either).
Still missing 1869, 1878, 1883, and 1888 (and perhaps 1892 and/or 1893, though for some reason I have both listed in my Numista collection; also missing several mintmark varieties, such as the 1881 plain).

Post-1894 pennies are rarely that worn, and after some point the dates weren't made quite so recessed and started wearing down too quickly, so I don't have that many examples from this period (though I do have a few).
