COINS, CHANNEL ISLANDS, GUERNSEY William IV (1830-1837), Copper Double, 1830, dot before date (Pr 72 var; S 7202; KM 1). Extremely fine with light red brown tone, rare.
ex A L T McCammon collection, Baldwin's Auction 20, 11 October 1999, lot 144 (part)
The date and the 'D' and 'E' of DOUBLE have been double cut, while the "dot" looks like it has been double stamped with the second stamp taking out half of the dot. The dot is of a significant size that it is something intentional and not a piece of rust or a slip of the die cutter. But it is slightly elliptical, so hard to imagine what stamp was used to put it there. Puzzling.

Estimate: £100-150
