This is advertised as an 8/5 repunch - I think it's actually an 8/7... Anyone know for sure?

You say tomatoe and I say tomato.
Doesn't really matter as there is only one reverse variety.
The date on that coin is the same as the one pictured in Charlton's.
This coin has a punched N in CENTS, it's even bulging out the other side on Victoria's cheek.

Yes, there is only 1 Reverse for the 1880, but Charlton shows it in the illustration as an 8/7 .... they all must be 8/7's. No premium.

#7 = I would expect the leg of the 7 to be showing in the center of the lower loop of the 8

#5 = the 8 covers almost all of a 5 with the exception of the top tips of the underlying 5.

tough call and just a guess, but I would go with 5

I'm with Wade on this one. Since the prior issue was 1885 with no 1886 or 1887, this punch was originally an 1885 then over punched with an 8 to hide the 5.

I too think Wade is correct.
But ? 1880 is before 1885
The previous years were 187X and whoever named this variety just assumed a die with the three digits 187 was punched to become 1880.

Since there were no Newfie 10 cents struck in the 1850's there's no way that the 3rd digit would be a "5".

I suppose it's also possible that the bottom leg of the 7 is wide enough that the bottom loop from the 8 covered it's edges, while the top part of the leg is sitting under the top loop of the 8?

One way to tell would be to measure the depth of both loops and see if there is a difference?

But as DBM pointed out, if they are all the same then it probably doesn't matter (other than to NOT pay a premium)

@Wade et al., I checked with Hugh Powell, who I assume knows everything about NFLD, and he confirmed that all of the 1880s are repunched 1870s. Also, that there's no premium.
