Hello Folks,
I have imaged a 1966 Australian 1 cent, with upset rotated die approximately 143 degrees. The 2nd coin is 150 degrees and the 3rd which is a Gem is 147 degrees, I have stored these for many years and have a few more, when I get time I will try and image more - thanks for looking, I havent seen any apart for the one I sold and it was snapped up very quick.

I hope you enjoy looking at the coins, I am looking forward to valued input on how rare etc - especially a key date coin.

How rare do you think this coin would be and what sort of value do you think, its a little toned from an old time hand wrapped roll and uncirculated, it would grade MS63 or a touch better.




Coin number 2 150 degrees and coin number 3 which is Gem grade 1s 147 degrees

depends on the buyer, just going off memory 1c,2c, 10c and 20c on the 1966 can get a bit upset as to the value not sure, as grade on these are very nice.

Thanks for the reply, yes they are nice blunt 1st whisker errors, a standard UNC catalogues at $30, Upset and rarely seen in UNC, price I am not sure, that last one would grade a close MS66, it would have gone higher apart from the small mark below the 1 on 1966, hopefully someone can advise on price.
Anyway thank you for posting - :-)

Nice coins.

It seems to me you've got your angle measuring device upside down. 12 o'clock should be 0 or 360 degrees not 180.

Therefore your coins are upset to 320-330 degrees, not 140-150.

I was thinking the same thing.
Also, I think the Queen should be upright and the reverse rotated.

Thanks i'll adjust the images and set them the right way, should the obverse be set at 180 deg and show the upset to the reverse, I thought Australian coins would be shown as I have imaged, great feedback &

Nice finds - the bronze upsets don't seem to get much love (probably because they're not in change any more).

Yes,all the varieties,mint errors,overdates etc seem to have gone off the boil the last few years,not only Ebay but Auctions as well IMO.
Hope they bounce back into favor as I have 50 years collecting of them stored in boxes.

Those are some sweet coins Hugo07. I enjoy a good upset, especially in UNC stock.
Keep 'em coming.
