Lot 35:
South Africa: Republic Cent “English – Thick Flan” of 1965 MS 63 Brown NGC.
“Extremely Rare Thick Flan – Unofficial Mint Experiment?”
Hern’s says: “Recently (2015) coins have come onto the market: 3 x 1965 English, 5 x 1965 Afrikaans and 1966 Afrikaans one cent measuring between 1.7, 2.1 and 2.3mm in thickness. All off official dies and these graded by an USA Co (all uncs). They are not patterns and not original – issues perhaps, unofficial mint experiments”.
Given the unique nature of this coin we would like to wish all bidders vying for the ownership of this gem the very best of luck.
Sold @ R36,000.
