1772 Contemporary Counterfeit English Halfpenny. George III Type. Simian Style. AU-55.
79.9 grains. A superb deep chestnut brown example that shows little actual wear -- the central weakness is due to the soft strike on this paper thin planchet. Great style, eye appeal and a full date on this iconic counterfeit halfpenny type.
Pedigree: Paper envelope with collector notes included.
