Belgium 2 centimes 1874 Large narrow date/Small wide date
« on: November 07, 2013, 02:59:19 PM »
Can anyone confirm that the picture below has both types ?
With all those error coins from Belgium, I'm not sure anymore ... ;)

Thanks, Paul.

Looking at the space between 1 and 8, it seems to me that you var two different varieties there. I suppose someone noticed that the 1 was badly aligned and had it fixed.

That 4 is badly done you want to cry. I wonder if they got  it right before the die wore out? Thanks Aernout.

Hi Peter,

The coin (in this case the 4) was damged after leaving the coin house ;)
