Re: Re '59 low 9 Double Punched G in Regina

I'm certain the 9 in the 1859 dies was simply punched in "by eye". I have spent hours doing careful overlay studies of the date digits of the 1859s and all later dates of the Victorian cents. The position of the 9 seems to be located in all directions around a central "ideal" location and, to me, is of no consequence. As to the cause of the farthest departures from the "ideal" location, I think the degree of exhaustion or mental state of the punch wielder is the primary variable. I use "mental state" advisedly, because there was a mental issue with the Resident Engraver, James Wyon!
