Nice coin Wally, it's quite a low mintage and a key date, but that 9 looks nothing like any of the other 1939 examples on a google search that I did, I'd call the Wynyard coin centre or someone like that.

Here you go Silver, got a bit of restoration work to do on this one

Look like the 9 has a split tail, possibly from being sheared off and rotated at the mint. Can't see any other marks indicating it was post mint. Interesting phenomena, keen to find out if it increases or decreases the value of this key date sixpence.

I reckon that might be rarer to detect than a real sovereign mate. thumbsup

Yes, I suspect far more sovereigns were minted and lost.

Found out it is gold plated, so not far off the mark thumbsup maybe next time tongue

Have heard stories of lost bottles of gold Ivo, just panned out the content but no cigar. cry

Glassy crystals embedded in the host lava rock Sandta, and a handful of surface finds that have weathered their way out. Thinking that makes them obsidian. Although not entirely sure, I would like to think they are black diamonds big_smile lol big_smile
