A little Verdi-Care soak (since the green looks to be not soft) and you've got a great coin. The 9 looks nicely repunched .. can you get a better photo?

Also, can you also get a better photo of your 1882 obverse from your 4/25 post? ... that might be a 2/1 obverse and you never reposted from then.

Very good buys!

Your last 1859 posted has reverse die cracks at leaf 5 and between leaves 11 and 12. Those and the stem to leaf 9 Identify this reverse as Haxby J4.

The obverse has repunching at the bottom of the D of DEI which matches Haxby obverse 45c.

The die pair is PC59-45C1 (45c + J4)

Good advice from okiecoiner to get rid of the green stuff!

Sorry for the incredibly late reply but you could get $10-15 Canadian for the 1884 and 1886. If the 1886 is in AU as you say (provide larger pics and we will help you), that price will go up
If you have any of the following Canadian coins for sale, message me:
1. 1937 Mirror or Matte specimen coins, in SP64 or higher for mirror, and SP66 and higher for matte.
2. 1908 or 1911 specimen coins, in any specimen grade.

Here's a closeup of the date from the '82 in that second batch.



For comparison, here's the date from the '82 in the first group.



On this second one, note the anomaly visible at the lower left corner of the image that rather looks like a punch was applied to the surface for some reason.

Despite being quite brown with only the slightest traces of original luster, I see no technical reason (that is, wear) that ought to prevent this from making AU.

Geez, I'd rummage in that 'junk' bin every day for coins like the ones you've acquired! Grab 'em all.

Hey, Lucky Cuss collects Victoria cents!

I would also collect chocolate coins, except for that one problem.

lucky cuss ... it's the Obverse (*Queen side) that I needed the photo of to see the throat/chin, and where the pointed neck meets the beads and where the crown tip touches the upper bead. Thanks

Well, I guess I sort of now do, albeit on the cheap.

Oops, you quite clearly stated you wanted to see the obverse, I got fixated on the "2/1" reference and thought this was an overdate issue. My bad. I confess I don't have any familiarity with the die variations you mention.

So here's the 1882H you specifically wanted to see a better image of, this being from the second group I posted.



For good measure (and for comparison), here's a shot of the other 1882H from the first group.

The '82 from the second group (top photo) is an Obverse 1a and the phto from the first group (last pic) is an Obverse 2. Neither is a "hybrid" 2/1. What city are you finding these great buys in?

Tucson, from each of two dealers (nationally known, actually) I regularly shop with there. Neither has shown any great interest in them, and I presume they acquire them only as part of larger lots of coins that they purchase. I've nurtured my relationship with these folks so that I generally get to rummage through their "pending" accumulation (of what is presumably going to be "bargain" or "junk" bin fare) of world coins before anyone else does, and besides Canadian large cents, I do find a lot of other great stuff among these culls. One of the two sells such by the pound.

Buying vickies by the pound would be a great and quick way to find some interesting varieties.

...and then you post them here and we will try to do the ID's on them for you..

..and now to book myself on the next flight down to Tucson...
