Hi all. I'm far from an experienced coin collector. Going through a few of my coins and stumbled on this strange looking 1870 5 cent coin. The T in Victoria seems to have a knob or extension at the top. Has anyone seen one of these before?
It looks like a die crack from the denticle down to the T. The the crack opened up inside the vertical part of the T. This looks to be a later die state. With every strike the D/C may have gotten larger and wider. A keeper coin, but not much added vale.
