    Replica Cut Halfpenny?

    This look suspiciously like a roughed up modern replica to anyone else? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/204158103225?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=2_uh5A_cSAi&sssrc=2349624&ssuid=G6uCbYI7QUO&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY

    CNG counterfeit E1 Cypher Halfpenny

    I was just amused by the 'fake' spelling of Withers. 😉

    The 'Whithers' is a giveaway, too!

    Blank for a Brass Threepence?

    Thanks for your replies, everyone! I'll do some more digging. I would assume the Royal Australian Mint, judging by John's alias.

    Blank for a Brass Threepence?

    No proof, sadly. It's from a collection formed in the '40s and '50s I'm working my way through.
  6. I've come across what I believe to be a blank for a nickel brass threepence. It weighs 6.84 grams which fits, but I've never come across one before as I imagine they'd have been hard to smuggle out of the Mint. (I also wasn't expecting it to be circular as I'd never thought about how the geometric shape would've later been made!). Has anyone else come across something similar?

    DNW Hammered Prices

    Me? Thank you! Been nearly two years but had a strong urge to check out my old haunts. Hope you're all doing well!

    DNW Hammered Prices

    I'm finding it cheaper to buy from well known dealers than eBay or auction houses. How times have changed... 🤯

    Wonderful finds and context!

    Edward III penny of York - cross in quatrefoil

    An interesting example! My thought is it's a continuation from the engraving of the die and not a deliberate element of the design, the portrait is definitely Edward III. I've seen similar ones before, e.g. the below.

    Ebay's Worst Offerings

    This was originally £1,999 when I posted, so looks like the decimal point has been corrected now.
