Ockenden Collection [from O.M.W.W. 1964], bt R.E.O. This is the final restrike series from the original dies, important in showing what the flawed dies looked like at the end, and it was made by the Wyon firm in the 1870s. The Wyon productions were commercial, although this particular example, and others like it, may not have been. The dies disappeared after this period; the current dies in the British Museum from Pinches are false
