Appears to be another partial letter under the C.
What do you think ?
Opinions appreciated.





Its an 1861 half sovereign.

I don't see how another letter would have existed there, given the position. That's the C in VICTORIA, correct?

It is weird. I do agree that it does look like another letter under there

It must be die chips, damage, or a combination of the two.

Another much clearer example turned up.
Maybe a partial R under the C ?
Opinions appreciated.

Is there anything like this on any of the other letters?

There is a small rectangle under both of the second 1's in the date. Not sure if that is supposed to be there or not but It looks like it would line up with the first "A" in Britanniar, if that were to be an "E" under the "C"

Looks as if they made a restrike over an older design. More letters have anomaly-like features, even the date 186 and the 1 especially. Appears that there is a maller more narrow 1 beneath it.. Maybe some kind of variation?
