1701 Halfcrown, looks like it was historically lightly cleaned but it is still a nice example.

Sorry! 😊 It looked too nice to pass up on even though I paid the same for it as the seller did for it and another coin.

😁won myself a die instead, I'm thinking 1 cent Victoria style but open to suggestions of a more accurate direction

My first thought was something from Hong Kong but that's just a rough guess.

I believe a Die Matrix there. Interesting for those of us that like the Gothic design. Interesting on the variation in proportions there.

yea agree with it being a matrix, looks quite worn and has some signs of use, searched all around the blank parts of the edges where the legend would normally be and there's no signs any residuals. Second die/matrix for the coin accessory collection :P

Picked up a couple of nice upgrades. First this Halfpenny - I know they are less popular here than the Pennies, but this one looks pretty good to me. I make it as Dies 11 and J, Freeman 321, but please correct me if I am wrong.

The other is this 1662 Crown without Rose. I could use some advice - in Spink I believe it is S3353 as it has no Rose and the edge is undated, but the book suggests this should be Coin alignment whereas mine is definitely medal. Any thoughts? Is this a variant listed elsewhere?

Coincraft's 1997 catalogue lists this date/denomination with both alignments - their numbers C2CRM-025  and C2CRM-30. According to them, there is a slight premium for your type, but not much!!

Another pickup in the job lots I have just finished sorting - 1865 Farthing but I think without the normal "5 over something". Am I right?

Its been a while since I posted any new acquisitions. Pick this one up on eBay the other day for a reasonable price, another gap filled in my sixpence collection. I would grade this as GEF/AUNC am I about right, your thoughts, please.
