    Halfpenny ID check

    On both of the previous overstrikes the underlying P is clear, albeit on the F-282, being more worn, it is less obvious. I did have one or two dubious F/P's which were clearly flattened serifs upon closer examination. If I find them again or images, I'll post them for comparison.

    The F over P from my F-282 (7 & g)

    Much scarcer than the 6 & g HALP penny.

    Halfpenny ID check

    I've found the A to the RIGHT of the lighthouse to be the scarcest followed by the B. Die letter A appears to me to the most common in either of the letter positions to the LEFT of the lighthouse. Die letter C follows with same observation regarding either of its two letter positions. Die letter B is next scarcest followed the die letter A to right of the lighthouse. Years ago I had posted images of these in the forum. Can't seem to find them now. Probably using incorrect search parameters.

    Advice on splitting proof sets for an album

    That works as well. It's a matter if personal preference. Some collectors like to view the coin through the flip, others prefer the envelopes with which the argument that it "protects the enclosed coin from light" could be made as well. So long as there is NO ACID NOR PVC it is better for the coin, ESPECIALLY PROOFS!!

    2nd specimen, not as good, but is a HAIF penny without the end of the leg of the L showing.

    For comparison 2 different obverse 2 HAIF pennies. First specimen is an earlier die state with the end of the leg of the L showing (ie: HAI.F)

    Advice on splitting proof sets for an album

    If using flips, you need the stiffer PVC FREE type. More subject to cracking, but safer for the coin
