APRIL 1999

DIE VARIETIES

Apr #1 - Misshapen lettering due to Die Deterioration on the Obverse and plugged "A" in ELIZABETH. This appears to be a very late Die state. Die Plating appears to have been Peeled, Chipped and Pitted all over, with some areas evolving to Die Chips. This may be a nice example of a Die that was then polished to produce the fat lettering of the Jan #1 type. The Reverse shows a very small Die Crack extending from the base of the front paw of the bear into the field. *Estimated value -$6.00*

Apr #2 - Very slight Ejection Doubling on the Obverse. On the word "ELIZABETH. *Estimated value -$1.00*

Apr #3 - The Reverse shows a very small Die Crack extending from the base of the front paw of the bear, into the field. A different Die than #1, this would suggest a reoccurring weakness inherent in the design of the Die. On the Obverse a large Dot, due to a Pitted Die, appears below the "A" of REGINA. *Estimated value -$3.00*

Apr #4 - Fatten and misshapen letters due to Die Deterioration similar to Jan #1. The Reverse shows a very small Die Crack extending from the base of the front paw of the bear, into the field. A different Die than #1 & #2, this would suggest a reoccurring weakness inherent in the design of the Die. *Estimated value -$10.00*

Apr #5 - The Reverse shows a very small Die Crack extending from the base of the front paw of the bear, into the field. A different Die than #1, #2 or #3, this would suggest a weakness inherent in the design of the Die. On the Obverse a Dot, due to a Pitted Die, appears below the "I" of REGINA. *Estimated value -$2.00*

Apr #6 - The Reverse shows a Die Crack extending from the base of the front paw of the bear, into the field. A different Die than #1, #2, #3 or #4 this would suggest a reoccurring weakness inherent in the design of the Die. Reverse Die is also slightly Misaligned. -Pascal Goovaerts *Estimated value -$15.00*

Apr #7 - Large "Die Chip" (Plugged) in the top left opening of the Maltese Cross in the Queen’s crown. Also has a "Die Chip" in the lower part of the "B" in ELIZABETH, but not quite a "Plugged" letter. -Peter Marzitelli
*Estimated value -$7.00*

STRIKE VARIETIES

Struck through Grease-Obverse. *Estimated value -$4.00*

Double Strike - Rotated in collar about 15 degrees. Second strike was a slight Partial collar. *Estimated value -$300.00*
