1942I Half Penny 2 Reverse D Long Denticles Rennicks A36A
Tritons Tech site, Writing in JNAA#8 Paul Holland says,

"The majority of 1942 Bombay halfpennies were minted with the "type C" die but a few were struck with yet another tool prepared in Bombay, the "type D" reverse which featured tall denticles.
The type D reverse was used for all 1943 halfpennies minted in Bombay"

I have a type D reverse with the same missing leg on K in KG. And, doesn't the 1 in 1942 appear to tilt slightly right?
