Hi Glenno,
Here's the photo of a tilted 7.

If you draw a line across a normal 50c piece you will see the difference.

How's the coin collecting going? I just saw a 2 cent piece go up for $3950 may be that is the coin that you should be looking for in you coins.

I found some DB, would you like to buy any 2 cent pieces, and how much are you willing to pay (ha ha).

Hey db. I've been away but am back now. I am strictly a desktop user ('cause I don't have a phone....am I the only one in the world??). I've got a few 2 cent pieces to look through....might be a rare one there, who knows?

Hey db.

I did some homework on the missing "SD" on copper coins and it isn't resricted to 1981...so I had look through some of my copper collection and found a '66 with no "SD". Gotta be happy with that!

I gave up looking for varieties (die cracks, etc) after decimals came out as there didn't seem to be many in the early mintings, yet quite a few in later pre-dec coins. Must have a look at my decimals some day although it would take more than a day, Lol.

As said yesterday, here is a better pic of the $1 1425085053_fullsizerender.jpg as you can see the extra ear behind the ear of the top roo and the 'lump' on the back of the one below it, looks like a spew from the first roo

i dont think in its condition it would be worth much, maybe $5 if it was a nice clean coin i would say a few more dollars
