[BP]   BRONZE PENCE 1902 - 1936

GRADE 

Price ()


Some collectors have started collecting or recording variations in date widths. 

I do not consider the great majority of these variations as being of significant importance or rarity above the norm. 

Some, like the 1889 narrow date, do eventually achieve a rarity status and command a premium over the norm. 

Only time will tell which of the others do ! 

I shall list and scan some of the variations that pass through my hands.
