Ireland / Eire

The normal edge for these coins is a milled edge with an ‘engrailed’ pattern which is added after the milling.

  • Coins exist without fully ‘engrailed edges’ for all years.
  • Most of these have two small groves in the milling at two opposite points where the ‘engrailing’ machinery started but failed to complete.
  • The normal ‘engrailing’ also shows its two start points quite clearly as short plain sections within the engrailing.
    • Pieces without fully ‘engrailed’ edges command a significant premium over normal coins.
    • These coins are not particularly rare but the mintage for each year are unknown
