Hi all As a follow on from early comment on this coin could you tell me if the below is lamination error and also a poor strike where the denticles are all bit missing on the left. (or just wear and PMD). It also looks under loupe that I found another dot just above the dirt mark between 1 & 9 where the possible lamination error is. The amount of dots in various locations on different pre deccimal coins certainly supports the idea of rust on the die.
Interesting. He states no known varieties on 1928 Aust Penny. Calls the broken 8 under 'cracks & chips' but says it may be a variety. There are a number of broken 8 varieties I believe? Some R7 like the dot before P according to Renniks apparently?
Thanks Mr T. I have it on order and should arrive Thursday. Will keep me amused whilst I quarantine. Positive covid test today the day after wifey is released from her quarantine. Unbelievable! If anyone wants a coin looked up to see if it is there then please shout out. Very happy if I can give at least a little something back to the community.

Sorry to hear that,its still around up here on the North Coast of NSW but doesn't get much attention any more even thou. it can be deadly.
I hope collecting errors/varieties of Oz. pre-dec. Coins becomes popular again,i have boxes of them from my School days that I have lost interest in. Never had the money for key dates so concentrated on finding errors/varieties for years.
I purchased the Renniks Australian Pre-Decimal & Decimal Coin Errors (First Edition) edited by Ian McConnelly. It is not really a list of errors, more a guide to the vaious error types with illustrations of some of the more fantastic and bizarre errors that have come from the mint (and some examples of coins that have been altered post mint.
It does have a helpful list of prices realised at sale and auction for various errors and varieties.
Hi ttk. It is a great easy to use reference for any 'finds' . It certainly isn't the complete amount of all varieties but has so many that I hadn't even heard of nor see on ebay etc. Any you have that you want checked please shout out. I paid $35 from Renniks because I wanted some other stuff as well but you can pick up mid to high $20's if you hunt around I think.
