Several varieties of Nos. 632-3-4 have been described by collectors generally depending on slight differences in the shape and size of the letters and bars, but all appear to have been the result of the manner of striking, which is believed to have been by means of a drop hammer. A careful examination of very many specimens has shown that all have one thing in common and that is a flaw connecting the C of ADVANCE with the inner circle. This would indicate that the 'variations are due to the mode of manufacture entirely. See Illustration of No. 634 on Pl. 50.

Penny (n.d.). 33 mm. Upset.

  • Obverse. As No. 636.
  • Reverse. As No. 635, but with the kangaroo and emu further apart and slight variation in the herbage.

Nos. 635-6-7 have been included here as they all show the same flaw as on Nos. 632-3-4, between the C of ADVANCE and the inner circle. The roughness of workmanship and tendency to double striking of letters on Whitty & Brown's undoubted issues strongly indicate a common origin. They have generally been listed with Miscellaneous Tokens as bearing no name of the maker or issuer responsible for their redemption.
