I have a new book on Australian varieties, and I notice a lot of die cracks are listed--but not this crack through the date.
Is this common on KGV Pennies?


Thanks Latman100 for this interesting coin!

Nice little die crack DVCollector. I love the patina on the coin... looks like it was made of clay.
What is the name of the book of varieties that you have?

Old Thread,He/She hasn't posted for 12 years.

Since Ebay and USB scopes started in Oz around 2000 dozens,probably hundreds, of new errors/varieties in pre-dec Coins have been ID.
Sad thing is the market for these has gone cold since Ebay started as Collectors have realised they are very common,hopefully it will pick up again.

That's true but I'll say there still some very rare combination, that being said many are just sitting in dealer albums unsold, whether they are too much or not enough interest, it's probably at bit of both.

Sorry all, didn't realise it was an old thread. The last time I responded to an oldie it was flagged as old.
Regarding the market in these coins going cold, I'm not in it to sell any of mine and quite frankly, the lower the market goes the more affordable it will be for me to upgrade my roughies.
Swaps maybe, once I'm eligible in this community.
I get a big thrill finding errors and new varieties, and it is good to find like minded collectors.
As always, the advice on this forum is invaluable. Thanks to all.

I was the same when I was at School in the 1960's,i did a paper run/route and kept all Coins with a Kings Obverse,likewise my Sister who worked in a Bank,so I had boxes of Die faults/overdates/mistrikes etc. although I have sold all the major mistrikes over the years.

Even back then,1960-66, 99% of circulating Coins were QE2. so 'Kings Head' copper/silver were scarce and extremely collectible.

Enjoy your hobby/passion and I hope you jag something valuable.

Cheers Basil, we must be of similar vintage. I also sold papers and collected newsagent money around 1964 when I was 9 - 10yo.
My father and grandfather were the avid collectors back then and I would help out by spinning coins for them looking for upsets.
