HI Guys,

can anyone give me some information or link about the single and double lines under sitting britannia of the 1940 pennies.
Normally you have a single line. I know that the doubles exists.




The 1940 dated penny was minted for several years until 1944, when coins of that date were issued.  During that period there was a design change on the reverse, the exergue line being doubled.  I do not think either variety is scarce.


Attached is an image from my website showing the difference between the two types.

Pictures of the entire reverse for each type are shown on


Here is a more complete documentation
