Hi Everyone,

Im new to the community. The reason I have posted is because I have a 1938 Half Penny, which I believe is a misprint. The H from Half and the Y from Penny is missing. So it actually spells Alf Penn. I will try to attach some pics.

Regards
Karl

This looks like the result of a Grease Filled Die. When the coin was struck, the H and the Y on the die had an accumulation of grease and debris from the minting process pressed into those areas. The metal of the planchet couldn't flow into the die, so the resulting coin has missing details.

Do a search on Grease Filled Die and you should find more information and images.

Thanks, would this coin have any value. I was given it by my father and wanted to surprise him.

Probably wouldn't have much value if it was a US coin, not sure about the UK.
