Just now reading in the 'More Pennies' thread about the B over R 1862 penny which sold on eBay recently and it being only the eight known example it occurred I'd not shared this here.

A 1694 halfpenny with the MVRIA error in the obverse legend. Before now both Rob and myself had believed there to be only three in existence. Mine makes four.

Extremely rare, and to give this some context; there are now six 1695 DEI GRATIA halfpennies recorded.

It does Ian. I'm pleased to own it.

Oh, by the way, eighth, not eight. Apologies.
