We were discussing some scarcer 1893 Vicky large cents on another site, so I had to post a few photos there from some research that I had done for inclusion in the 2011 Charlton that we did. I thought that I would do the same thing here so you folks can see them. That date has some really nicely offset repunches. Two of them are in Charlton, but one of those is a bit different, so maybe not and there's another I have seen only once and I have it. I've never seen another one in anyone else's hands. It looks like the 9 of a 9/6 1859, with the gap filled in, as well as the small protrusions in the upper loop.

The last 2 (or 1st 2, however the computer spits it out) are from a single coin that has a "round-the-clock" die crack running all through the inside beads on the Obverse. In 4 different places, the D/C shoots out from the beads, through the letter and to the denticles, but I'm only showing 2 .. the other 2 D/C's through the letter are heavier. The die couldn't have struck many more coins. 1893 is a great variety year with some nice offset repunches, both to the 9 and the 3, since both digits were handpunched into the working die. I have 6 different 9 repunches and 4 different 3 repunches and don't count the 3's that are canted/rotated. Enjoy these .. I have more:

I have pretty well given up on the treasure hunts. I go to shows now just to see old friends and I haven't bought an EBay coin in a long time .. gave up looking. I have boxes and bags unlooked at if I get bored

It's the last one of yours that is the real toughie to find ... the first 2 tough, but findable. Since the last 2 digits were handpunched into the working die, the guy with the punch and hammer must have had a liquid lunch. Nice coins, MG and it's good to have a few Vicky's in a thread. Kinda like the old CCRS times.
