@Stevearino could you please look at the last 2 images? I cannot find an example of the overdate to compare it to. Many thanks
Well, that's certainly interesting. I'm not an expert on varieties at all. A 50 øre 1928/7 isn't listed in what I thought was the most complete catalog: "Handlerkatalog Norske Mynter 1649-2019." There are some overdates listed, e.g. 1918/7 in 2 øre and 5 øre and a "tall 7" for the 1937 10 øre.
But there is currently a 1937/6 2 øre for sale on ebay in an NGC holder, so obviously the catalog isn't complete. I've searched auction records in Norway and haven't found an example for sale, but the 1937/6 looks genuine (and NGC thinks so, too).
So, whether I "want" to see the 7 under the 8, I think in the last image it certainly seems like a possibility. There's also the possibility that hits to the "8" give the appearance of a "7." I would think that the 7 should've been farther to the right.
I'm sorry I can't give you a definitive answer. Somewhere I have a list of several folks on CT who are either Norwegian or collect Norwegian coins. When I find that list I will post your question, as well as some of my own. and include you in the folks I'm trying to reach.
@Stevearino Thanks for your time on this. Numista and NGC have a listing for a1928/7
@expat, for the Numista idea. For some reason it never occurred to me. Two heads are always better than one . That's another example of why I'm a Supporter on CT. Wish I'd found this site about 5 years earlier than I did. It would've saved me from making a lot of foolish buying decisions.
Thanks for that. Although not verified it has the same flat top and distinct corner top right, and the diagonal running through the bottom hole of the 8.
i see the 7 also!!
