This has a D over D in DEF. I couldn't find mention of this one in the errors listing just the obverse D over D.

Always difficult to tell for sure on worn coins but it certainly looks like there's some doubling going on there so it might be an interesting discovery.

G4F22. 1822 A Type Obverse D over D or doublets as there some times called obverse 2 with incuse midribs

G4F221. 1822 B Type Obverse D over D or doublets as there some times called, obverse 2 with incuse midribs

These are from http://www.farthingshalfpennyerrors...o/george-iv/

They do not mention reverse D over D. Maybe someone should submit it to them!

It appears the author doesn't know hos obverse from his reverse. The variety shown are same as mine and the date side on this farthing is the reverse. Probably getting confused with some farthings which have the kings head and the date on the same side. I have never heard of the term doublets either.It would be described as D over lower D

Hello all

Just to clarify both the 1822 Farthings on http://www.farthingshalfpennyerrors.com are both obverse 2 which is lower three leaves incurse, obverse 1 is lower three leaves raised.

Both examples have the same reverse ( DD ) but because the obverse dies are different though still obverse 2 with three incurse lower leaves they had to be called something ! hence type A, type B, does anyone have a type C.

Lastly ive hopefully uploaded page`s 4 & 5 out of a 1981 general coin book which list the terminology of doublets or triplets even.

I have a vast amount of books some going back to the late 19th century which I use for information.


The wisest words I can say to any collector is

! If You Have Never Heard Of It ! ! Doesn`t mean it don't exist !

Thank you

Joe Lee.

Nice old book you have there but again as I said the author has mixed Obverse with reverse Gratia and DEI as mentioned are on the obverse side but for the point of this post DEF is on the reverse side with Britannia as the subject. Now unless I have been greatly misinformed UK coinage always Has the ruling monarchs head on the obverse side of the coin. Which Makes the DEF D/D clearly a reverse D over Lower D. I probably never heard of those exact phrases as I wasn't born when these words were used and we use a different way now to describe errors. Still fascinating to get a glimpse of the old terminology used back in the day
