DIE VARIETIES

Jan #1 -"Fat Lettering" on Obverse. Nicest example of "Die Deterioration Doubling" -ever seen on any Canadian coin. -Tom Merritt *Estimated value -$18.00*

Jan #2 -a two coin progression set.

#2A- A different Die than #1. It has thickened letters similar to #1, but not as extreme. Shows "Peeled Die Plating" on the inside of the "E" in ELIZABETH. *Estimated value -$2.00*

#2B- A Later stage in which the "E" becomes a plugged letter. The area with the "Peeled Die Plating" evolved into a "Die Chip". *Estimated value -$10.00*

Jan #3 -a two coin progression set.

#3A- A Dot between the bottoms of the "T" and "S" of CENTS on the Obverse (Pitted Chrome Plating). "Die Crack" on bottom of "N" in CANADA on the Reverse. Minor Plating flaw below the totem pole. *Estimated value -$2.00*

#3B- Second progression shows a later state -The Dot has now disappeared on the Obverse. On the Reverse the minor Plating flaw at the bottom of the totem pole evolves to a Die Chip. Many Die Cracks now extend from CANADA. *Estimated value -$3.00*

Jan #4 -"Die Crack" on bottom of "N" in CANADA, similar to #3 but a different Die. This would suggest a reoccurring weakness inherent in the design of the Die. The Obverse has a Dot at the end of CENTS and a small Die Crack on the "N" of the same word. *Estimated value -$2.00*

Jan #5 -Very large spot above the first "A" in JANUARY. *Estimated value -$5.00*

Jan #6 -First "A" in January "Plugged". *Estimated value -$8.00*

Jan #7 - A two coin progression set.

Jan #7A - Dot between the bottoms of the "N" and "T" of CENTS on the Obverse (Pitted Chrome Plating). Image #7 refers to the Dot only. -Mark Alexander *Estimated value -$2.00*

Jan #7B - In the later progression misshapen letters due to Die Deterioration. Image #7 shows misshapen lettering that appears on #7B *Estimated value -$4.00*

Jan #8 - "Tool Damage" the result of the Dies striking an object of similar or greater hardness. Affects the left side of the coin. Warped fields on both Obverse and Reverse. Very Nice example. -Tom Merritt *Estimated value -$20.00*

STRIKE VARIETIES

Struck through Grease-Obverse. -2 matching pairs *Estimated value -$4.00 ea*
