1934/33 Threepence OVERDATE Very Good-Fine
The 1934/33 overdate variety Australian Threepence.
A well-known and popular coin among Aussie variety collectors, While this overdate is well-known, I have yet to read an explanation for a Threepence from 1933, since none were minted from 1929-33.
The mystery gets deeper when you consider the date was most likely on the hub by this time, since I have not found any variation in date placement for 1934. Therefore, to arrive at an 1934/3 overdate, a master die dated 1933 would need to exist to make a hub bearing this date, then finally the die.
The only plausible answer I can imagine presently is that they initially planned to strike Threepences in 1933, but cancelled it after making just one die.
Nice coin, at a reasonable price. Good communication & service + fast delivery. Will buy of again
