1943 threepence with cracked die marks. Is it worth anything?


Found this today. It has die cracks marks front and back.
4- On George’s side 1 on the E of georgE, 1 between I and King. 1 Between G and Emperor. 1 On R of EmpeRor.
And 4 on the Patu side. 1 on each of the Patu cords.1 between L and A of ZeaLAnd. 1 on 3 of 1943.
Photos aren’t good but they are definitely raised die marks.
I can’t find any reference to this die crack anywhere on the net.
I rang the only coin collector I know and he has never heard of this die crack pattern there is another known one for 1943 but this is very different.
What should I do chuck it on Trademe or is it worth taking to a coin dealer. Will they give me a valuation? Coin is in better than average coconditions


Better photos through the magnifying glass.


Nice coin, yes this should be worth your while to place on EBAY or Trade Me to get a good price. I personally haven’t seen this variety and don’t know of any others even after 40 years of trading coins. A fantastic find, well done.


Thanks @gerard . I have put it on TRADEME
