  1. I would be grateful for some help with the error of an E over an R in DEF in the 1817 half crown please. I understand there are a few errors in the 1817 half crown but I cannot find any reference for this one it appears in the two specimens I have found to be a triple error E/E but also E/R. THe E over R in DEI is recognised on the obverse I have three specimens I have collected but I would be interested if anyone collects GIII half crowns if they could let me know your thoughts...many thanks
  2. For 1693 halfcrowns with the 3 of the date correct (second busts, third shields, QVINTO edge), the latest version of English Silver Coinage by Bull indicates that there are two types depending on the stops ▪️: ESC 860 with a ▪️ after GRATIA and the ▪️ after HI moved to before REX (i.e. after a crowned cruciform shield); ESC 861 with a ▪️ after GRATIA and no ▪️ between ET and REX. While examples of coins without a ▪️ after GRATIA exist, my query is about the “no ▪️ between ET and REX”. Has anyone ever seen an example? The only combinations I am aware of when the 3 of the date is correct are: reverse HI (crown) ▪️ REX ▪️ ET ▪️ (crown) REGINA, obverse GRATIA ▪️. reverse HI (crown) ▪️ REX ▪️ ET ▪️ (crown) REGINA, obverse GRATIA. reverse HI ▪️ (crown) REX ▪️ ET (crown) ▪️ REGINA, obverse GRATIA. reverse HI ▪️ (crown) REX ▪️ ET ▪️ (crown) REGINA, obverse GRATIA.

    How scarce are GB 1925 & 1926 halfcrowns?

    According to the catalogues, the British 1925 and 1926 halfcrown had relatively low mintages. This would suggest that they are relatively scarce when compared to other dates. Is the survival rate better than average? I seem to have found a disproportionate amount of 1925's and 1926's in the attic finds over the summer here in Ireland.
  5. Hi all, Purchased this coin a few months back and im just getting round to posting pics on here- its a beauty but it was sold to me as being in EF condition, and when i got it in the mail i immediately noticed a particular point of wear on the rim, also it is 0.20g underweight. What do you think- Yay or nay? Also there is this point on the coin that looks ,only in my view,as if it were silver plated and at this point the plate is damaged revealing the matrial underneath- I am 99% sure this is NOT the case, its just that that's the best way i can find to describe it. Here it is again: Heres the area of most wear on the rim:
