Description:
KM-2, ZAR 1898 penny; I am a bit buffled by the wear or weak strike in this year coins. I've got 7 of them and this is the best sample but still I woulf grade it good VF at best which is inconsistent with the total lack of wear in the rims that are perfect showing that the coin saw almost no circulation; there are field contact marks and abrasions but it looks to me that the dies themselves rusted over toward the end of mintage or maybe as British were advancing and thus quality deteriorated
