    I've messaged you Chris. All will be revealed.

    SCARCE 1956 Halfpenny

    I'm afraid there's a bit of a queue Chris. You'll have to join the back. You may also need to bring a chair with you. Could be a lengthy wait. 😁. (And you already have 2 of these F475, to my knowledge).

    Not in hand yet. Christmas post delays etc. An unfair question I'll admit. Photos when it arrives. Thanks Martin

    Thought I'd cropped that. Not going to try an edit. I'm not that brave.😁.

    Seasonal greetings etc..... eBay purchase last week, mainly because I thought there may be a P lurking under the F. Paired with a 7. My current example is obvious, as the F has worn away, leaving a definite P. These better grade coins are open to dispute, as not immediately apparent. At £26, I took a chance. Just wondering what others thought.

    Charles I Angel and medallions

    I know nothing about these but what a pleasure it would be to own. Beautiful.

    Do you remember the one that Jon posted. Had that Crown stamped into it. That matches the above coin. No A die crack and a huge crack under chin. Page 18 in this thread.

    There's some photos on page 4 or 5 of this thread Larry. Die crack through the A of Victoria. Had a quick look to see if Dr Nicholson had one in his collection. Couldn't see one but what a collection that was. Don't think he shopped on eBay. Good luck with your coins by the way.

    Elizabeth I Maundy Coinage

    Maundy money started with Charles II back in 1662, when he gave out a four penny, threepenny, twopenny and one penny coin to each individual. So not Elizabeth I. For some reason, I googled it a while back. I'm not intelligent enough to do links and techy stuff but Google is very helpful with this one. Bob.

    Believe me. It won't. You now have another Master.😁

    Facebook Coin Pages/Groups?

    I agree. I'm a member of a halfpenny group. Very little to no discussion. More a platform to show beautiful coins.(Which is informative in its own right. I'm not knocking it.) Which is a shame really, because there is a wealth of knowledge amongst some of the bigger name members.

    Great coin there Paddy. Are you thinking of purchasing? I think that this is the direction that I'm about to travel next. I love the history behind these coins. Contemporary counterfeit halfpenny and farthing families. By Jeff Rock and Others. A study of contemporary counterfeiters and the coins that can be attributed to each individual forger. Something that I've been meaning to purchase for a while now. I've often wondered if this thread would develope to encompass other monarchs. Pleased to see that it has.
  17. Panic over. Used the age old remedy of turning my phone off and restarted it. All working fine again now. No. It's http 500 error again
  18. Something is not working for me. When signed out, I can view the Halfpenny ID thread. When signed in, I can't. Shows HTTP 500 error. I can access this page when signed in. I've deleted everything that I can find on my phone, so must be something I've not done correctly. You may need to talk me thru it as a 5yr old child. I'm not very tech savvy. Thanks.

    Thanks Tom and Paddy for confirming what I saw. Dracott 2004. This pairing, proof only. 2021, variety confirmed. Would this be for the proof coin only, or has a circulation coin be found prior to mine? I'm guessing mine is a circulation coin and not a poorly looked after proof. Await Gary, Richard, Bernie and Martin's views.

    Thanks for the reply Paddy. I thought I was alone. Reverse A* A# ( some use star, some hash) is the wider date spacing, most noticeable between the 6 and the 0. On reverse A, the 6 and 0 are closer and the zero lower. Another identifier for reverse A*# is the lack of flag pole on the ship, which this has (or hasn't). The full reverse is shown in my post just before Copper 123 post, immediately above.

    The above 1860 arrived today. I'm fairly confident that it is 1* + A*. No tie knot and wide date. The Dracott 2004 article lists this pairing as proof only known. His 2021 update merely says variety confirmed. Opinions and comments welcome. I've probably got it wrong. 😁

    The seller provided 22 photos. The above 2 were enhanced to show the detail. This one is a true to life photo, which I think shows the lack of tie knot more clearly.

    Thoughts on this one please, if you will? 1* + A* No tie knot, wide date.
