    What’s the history of this one, Paulus?

    Counterfeit Elizabeth I Halfpenny

    Found it...it’s the same one he had for sale early last year. http://www.predecimal.com/forum/topic/13607-counterfeit-elizabeth-i-halfpenny/?tab=comments#comment-190324

    Counterfeit Elizabeth I Halfpenny

    Just for clarification, when I say ‘I’ve seen a good number of these around,’ I mean a good number of types of counterfeit E1 halfpennies. There may also be a lot of this particular type around, I don’t know for sure because I haven’t had my eye on it for a couple of years! This one’s for sale by John Newman...IIRC he’s previously had other counterfeit (contemporary or otherwise) hammered for sale, and I think the idea was at the time that they were pretty obvious and he ought to know better. I’ll see if I can track that conversation down...otherwise I’ll have to retract this paragraph.
  4. Happy New Year everyone. See a good number of these around. Contemporary I’d think, certainly not Crown coinage. eBay 353313505402
  5. Lord, I just reread that entire thread 🥴

    Charles I Tower Mint Halfcrowns

    No other words for it...bloody hell, Paulus!
  7. I wish I could edit the title...it was more a ‘I can’t believe I’m so out of touch that this now achieves 85!’

    Did the CGS numbers reconfigure?

    Exactly the answer I was looking for...thank you so much!
  9. I have been out of the loop for a long time...do I remember it correctly that CGS reconfigured their grading against other grading scales, or was that just a dream I had? Is there a difference between the early and ‘late’ graded CGS pieces? I guess this is the question I’m asking! I’ve always been passionate about hammered, so never closely followed the grading posts!
