TSIA.

If anyone is interested, I will post pictures. I have quite a few of the dates including the rare 1869.
Looking for pre-1961 Russian and Soviet coins.

No, unfortunately not

But I do have a few other keys, ex. 1870, 1950, 1912H, 1918H, 1919H, etc.

The 1869 and 1909 coins are damaged and 1870 appears to be cleaned.

This isn't a complete collection - there are some dates I don't have yet (1864-68, 1871-74, 1875H, 1876-81, 1881H, 1883, 1886-87, 1893, 1905, 1918KN, 1919KN, 1951, and 1953)

I'd like to see your coins. Perhaps we should start a 'Days Of' thread for British bronze pennies from 1860 - 1970?

Perhaps?

I do have the 1970 somewhere, but it's an impaired proof :(

When I moved to UK, first thing what I wanted to do is to have full run of 1 penny coins. Love them. I don't have actual photos of collection as it is back home in Lithuania but in my archive I have a photo of bulk 1 penny coins I bought to start collecting.

CalzoneManiac,

Eventually you will find those coins. Would be really nice to see your collection. Maybe any Victorian era? Those are really beautiful coins.

When I will go to Lithuania, I will check the dates you need. Maybe I have any of them and more than happy to help you out to fill in.

Well done :) That is really cool. You have done a great job.

Once I come back home, I will see what I can do. We have a virus now in Europe so it might be even end of April :(

The '51 is a very tough coin - only 120,000 minted (less than 1/4 the mintage of the 1909-S VDB Wheat cent)
1953's mintage is 1.3 million

Most of the 1895-1967 coins have mintages above 10 million.
Besides the 1869, other notable key coins in the Bun Head series include:
1864 (3.4 million)
1868 (1.2 million)
1871 (1.3 million)
1875H (753,000)
1878 (2.8 million)
1880 (3 million)
1881 (2.3 million)
1881H (3.8 million)
1894 (3.9 million)

I also have 1869, though it's virtually worn smooth - not that that matters a great deal, just means it has had an interesting life :)

I am missing only 1869 (I have not been collecting the few mintmarked ones), so far all obtained from junk boxes. Of the 1/2 penny I am missing 1871 and of the farthings 1864 and 1869.

Here in Canada there are huge number of these floating around the country.

I have been collecting these for 20 years now and have all the dates and most of the major varieties - great fun! If you get into ALL the varieties I think you would go insane!
Here are a few of my better graded ones while we wait for the OP to get his pictures together:
