Re: Crazy 1881H Legend...

You're right Mr. Blais. It is tiring. Have a nice day.

Re: Crazy 1881H Legend...

Mr. Blais, I would like to recap. You posted some of your opinions about re-sunk dies. I posted that I disagreed with your opinions and gave my reasons. We debated some points back and forth through several posts. A few of my points were tinged with some sarcasm and if that offended you, I apologize...

Re: Crazy 1881H Legend...

mkb, You know, I suppose at some point early on I didn't conceive of a 2/1. Then three or four years ago I picked up a couple of coins that I thought may have been 2/1 cents. I am pretty sure that I had these coins when the CCRS discussions on the subject occurred. I may be wrong because the timing ...

Re: Crazy 1881H Legend...

You are persistent, I'll give you that. I have no interest in pursuing any further a debate that is at impasse between us. My arguments are not convincing you and yours are not convincing me. I don't see either of us moving and any readers can decide for themselves.

Have a nice day.

Re: Crazy 1881H Legend...

If a die is reduced in size for use on a smaller diameter coin, by definition the mint re-sank the die. And yes, I believe the process being described there is the same process being reported upon in the die department report through the years. In 1881 and 1882 the die department only reported the n...

Re: Crazy 1881H Legend...

mkb, Then I guess I do not understand how you missed the table on page 41 of the 1883 report which reported all 204 re-sunk dies were used to coin British Imperial coinage. By the way, I only spoke of the 1883 report because that was the one that you referenced. You may pick the mint report of any V...

Re: Crazy 1881H Legend...

I respectfully disagree with several points posted by mkb in this thread. 1. The Royal Mint did not resink old dies when minting the Victorian cents of Canada. If mkb had read the entire 1883 mint report from which he posted an excerpt from page 40, he would have found on the very next page (page 41...
