Comments

NOTE:
as for issues KM#1.1: Some were overstruck on Netherlands 1 Cent, KM#47.
as for issues KM#1.4: Until 1838 these were often struck over Netherlands 1/2 Cent, KM#51. If the date of the Netherlands coin is still visible, add up to 50 percent to the value, except for the dates 1837 and 1838 which are extremely rare.

The 1835 coin with narrow rim is said to have an overdate variety 1835/2 according to Krause; Morin does not report such an overdate variety.
The 1848 coin is said to have an overdate variety 1848/1 according to Krause; Morin does not report such an overdate variety.
The 1858 coin is said to have a variety without the dash underneath CENT; Morin does not report such a variety.
The 1863 coin is not reported by Morin
