Quote from: FosseWay on November 15, 2012, 01:53:10 PMNot sure about the first two, but 1869 should be reasonably OK to find if you don't mind what condition it's in. Mine cost me £2.50 - the date is clear and the outline of Britannia and the queen's head can be made out, but that's about it. Now Fine and upwards - that's a whole different ballgame.

Quote from: FosseWay on October 31, 2013, 10:03:06 PMThat's the bronze bun head version, first introduced in 1860. Tony meant the older style larger pure copper penny with Victoria's young head, which was replaced in 1860. Very few were minted in that year.
