I believe this to be a trial coin for Elizabeth II. I have compared the dates to other threepences dated 60's & 50's. And to me it looks like a 50's coin. I have sent this coin to the Royal Mint and they confirm via letter and phone call that it is a real threepence from them, however they said nothing about the date and stated I see a coin expert. I have done this, and the gentleman can not deny or confirm this date. In the hand it does look like a 52. If this is true, then it is the only one of its kind. There is no record of this coin in any book. I know you are saying, "it can't be." well the fact is, it is a threepence, it has the portrait of Queen Elizabeth on its back and to me the date shows a faint 1952. You be the judge!! I shall try and get better pictures of the date area for you. This could be your only chance to own, possibly the only coin like this. I rate this as in a corroded condition and the image shows that. This coin is also only 1mm thick, compared to the standard 2mm. You be the judge. Not been cleaned in anyway (by myself or by my knowledge). Photo's do not do this piece justice (sorry), much better in the hand.
