I have been asked by a few keen Members what i have been doing lately with Universals and Dominions
. I am glad you asked because I have a Project which I am hoping some of you may be able to help me with.
As a bit of background, it has long been contended that one of the Flaws on one of the Dominion plates was caused by a dropped tool during the maintenance of the Plate.
This dropped tool allegedly caused what is known as the “NN
” Flaw as illustrated below. However,
I have reason to believe that this particular flaw was progressive
and not a single event.
In my sorting through well over 100,000
of these Dominions over the years I have found multiple copies of the following which tends to show a progressive worsening of the “NN” flaw as shown below.
So, how can you help? If you have any Penny Dominions that show ANY marks around the “NN” of ONE PENNY I would love to hear from you. This study could indeed rewrite the history books if the case can be proven. So let’s hear from you
ps. I am ALWAYS interested in Penny Dominions and Universals in bulk.
