below: coinsandcanada pictures referencing the 1898 high H,

I was digging though a bag of large cents and found an example of the high H variety. coinsandcanada lists it, but with no pricing.

is this a common variety? is there a pricing premium over the regular H?

"regular H"


HIGH "H"

For the 1898's the mintmark for Heaton was handpunched into each Reverse working die. You will find high, low, left, right, and any combination of them No mintmark is worth any more than any other.

I believe I may have started the "High H" for this coin. I asked about this same thing back around 2005, on a now defunct coin forum. I bought several thousand Victoria cents in 2000-2010, and found several 1898's had a higher H than most, so I listed it on ebay as a High H variety. Not too much later, Okiecoiner and the other *devilish researchers checked things out and found it to be more common than earlier thought, and out it went. I just rechecked my 2 keepers and I didn't even bother to keep one.


*(devilish because they keep finding more things to search for - the heck never ends )

Are you talking about the "CanadaCopperCoin" site, Terry? I was the moderator on there, but the owner of the site let it be hacked by spammers and then the contract on the site lapsed. I tried to talk him into keeping it up, but he defaulted. I thought that lots of good stuff got passed on there.

Yes Okie. So much came up on that site that had never been catalogued, and it's a real shame all that info disappeared.

I posted the first 1872H double-punched N in CANADA, then Zonad pointed out the deformed V. I also posted about a 1967 quarter with die rotation (descending lynx). So many unlisted varieties and die cracks went by that it made your head spin to learn of them all.
There were also the early stages of the 1859 classifications, and the start of the varieties of large cents being listed by Charlton. Perhaps you will remember when I posted a photo of an 1881H cent with the beads die clash, and I think it was you offered to buy it for $20 - before this variety came out in the 2011 Charlton. I suspect the photo in Charlton is of that coin ?

I would never have offered to buy any coin, so you must have me confused with someone else. Once the 1st one showed up on the site, I found that I already had 2 of them ... just never looked there, since I was so busy looking for digit repunches. Actually most of the heavy-duty variety discoveries and research was on the old CCRS site that we all were on. Now THAT'S where lots of information was lost when we all pulled out posts and had Brian delete them so he and his site couldn't use them any more. It was me and 4 others from the CCRS site that put together the 2011 Charlton variety section. It was Rob Turner and I that got the DP3 thru 5, 9/6, and 2 other varieties listed in the front of the Charlton and included in Trends. 10 years ago was the primo time for Vicky bronze varieties.

Canadian Coin Reference Site was the one I was referring to. I liked it because it was less show, more tell. I don't think anyone EVER posted anything about a registry set.
