1861 halfpenny - Freeman 277 ?

Recommended Posts

Just picked up some bun pieces to have a go at learning to attribute varieties on these. I think this 1861 piece is 6 + G (Freeman 277) due to the incuse veins on the leaves + the spacing of the inner circle - confirmation or correction would be most appreciated !

Image looks like a 7 & G, F-282..

Can't be sure unless it's in hand

I thought so initially too, as that's the commonest type, but wouldn't the obverse have relief lines on the leaves then ?

There are times that it looks like an obverse 6 too....

You have the coin in hand so I'll defer to your assessment.

Images can be deceptive even with no deception intended....
