1931 Penny Indian Obverse

The 1931 penny was minted with two different obverse die types, the Indian and the London. It's not too often you come across a 1931 penny with the Indian obverse, and it's even rarer (than the 1930 penny) that you'll find one with the Indian obverse and the dropped one London reverse.

This article will help you determine which 1931 penny has the Indian obverse.

The coin seen above has the identifiers for the Indian obverse and also features an aligned 1 meaning it has been paired with the Indian reverse also. The main identifiers for the Indian obverse are:

1. Both colons after IMP point between the rim beads.
2. The last stroke of the N of OMN points at a rim bead.
