Definitely a beaded border on the reverse. I think the obverse might be toothed, looking at the distance between Vicky's portrait and the rim. Here's the obverse of my 1860 beaded penny for comparison:

Here's the obverse of my 1861 penny - definitely a toothed border:

As for the strange depression / area to the right of the reverse, I've no idea. With a coin as worn as this it's hard to tell. It may be PMD that's been smoothed down after decades in circulation, or it could be a lamination error. I'm sure other CCF members will have their own theories!

As for grading, Poor by UK standards, maybe AG in the USA.

I agree with Rob, toothed on the Reverse and beaded on the border. Extremely worn and a patch of corrosion to the right of Britannia.




My 1860 penny is very much the common toothed version. Although its almost GOOD




I know these are farthings, but they show the difference between beaded and toothed coins (left and right).
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.
