    Worn? clear date only, dear boy, clear date only.

    Anyway, I thought I would make a few points about the 1806 no incuse curl pennies. Peck was of the opinion that they are roughly in a 1:5 ratio as opposed to incuse curl examples. But I'm inclined to think it's more like 1:10 in view of the difficulty I've encountered obtaining one. Not especially easy getting a mid grade specimen, but the higher grades are difficult. 

    Finally got this one from a dealer, and noticed it had previously sold at the June 2021 LCA for just £70. He made a fair mark up on it, as you would quite reasonably expect, but it is one of the better ones I've seen, being toned GEF with no issues.

  2. Charles I Hammered Silver Halfcrown Mm Triangle F currently on eBay. I'm aware of Triangle Mm variants (chipped, in a circle etc) but don't know of a "Triangle F".  Have asked the seller but no reply as yet. I have little knowledge of Halfcrowns, can anyone enlighten me please?
