Please Read Before Posting A Topic

In the title please put date, denomination and type of coin design and a brief on what you are asking about.
In example: "1995 Lincoln Cent Missing 5" or "2010 Roosevelt Dime With a Line inside the rim".

All of this helps discern the different topics from each other and is much less confusing to members who want to help.
Topic titles like "how did this happen" or "help" often get ignored and lost in the confusion.

Someone whacked the coin, it's a huge shame for a 1861 Half Penny from the UK (Queen Victoria)

I have a 1967 Large Penny from the UK, & it's HUGE! But I've not seen it for a couple of months & I don't know where it went . . .
Coin collecting since 2019! (Still learning)

2019 finds: 1926 Wheat Penny

2020 finds: 1966 90% Silver Canadian Quarter, 1983-S Proof Kennedy Half Dollar. 2000-S Clad Proof Roosevelt Dime, 5 wheat pennies in a single coin roll, & a 1910 Wheat Penny for Christmas!

2021 Finds: 1949-S Jefferson Nickel

Many pennies from the British Commonwealth countries were large like your 1867. Down in Oz they had cool looking large pennies with a kangaroo on the REV (inexpensive in circulated condition!). Look in the foreign coin boxes at your local dealer or at shows.
