A different Vicky silver for my Collection - Canada 5 cents

Post by BAMBAM » Sun Apr 14, 2019 11:16 pm

Hi all, thought this was a vicky threepence at first but scrubs up as a Canada 1881H 5 cents.Nice condition too. An usual find for East Yorkshire.
Found with ORX in coin fast mode about 6 inches deep,newly rough ploughed field.

Hi BB,
You have what we call in Canada a "fishscale" our smallest coin and very coveted, it also appears to have a DIE Imperfection which could increase its value, here is a pic of a few of mine found a long time ago...HH...johnnn

It's always nice to find a bit of silver a bit different to the norm. ::g

Nice. Is that a gouge or has it been welded to something? :D Small colonial silver coins were often made into things like tie pins or brooches. ::g

I thought it was a stone graze from being in the soil but now you mention it it does look raised and not sunk.

I'd guess that it was once a tie pin then! ::g

I found one a few weeks ago on the beach though in rotten condition. As mentioned above, came from a Victorian 'charm bracelet.' Have found 'Victorian American' silver dimes used for the same purpose on local beaches also.
