Title G / VAN(-)UARD / G (L-59a)
Date 1969
Country Eire
/Catalog #
Denomination 10p
Description On its face it seems the maker misspelled Vanguard, as it appears as Van(-)uard. To correct it he punched a G above and below the missing letter. However, I've seen two additional examples with this same ?correction? which suggests it was intentional (see census for others). I have no explanation for the odd placement of letters. The coin itself has dull gray surfaces and shows dark staining with minor scuffing and scratching present. It may have also been cleaned at some point. Purchased from Michael Cartz / Telford, Shropshire, UK. (Nv. 6, 2020) ($1+).
