1747 G.B. Imitation Halfpenny?
1 1

2 posts in this topic

I have what I believe is an imitation halfpenny. Obverse shows Georgius spelled with a “U” instead of a “V” like real halfpenny. Reverse shows date uneven and going up into lines in field above. Real 1747 date even and below line. Any info on id would be great. I’ve read about James Altee, who worked at Manchin Mills, possibly having made some coins in NY or NJ in the late 1780’s. Any help would be much appreciated!

[This is the kind of inattention to detail that gives counterfeiters, some of whom are master craftsman, a bad name. The individual responsible for this inartistic mess should concede he simply doesn't have what it takes, and rely on the beggar's approach made popular by J. Wellington Wimpy:  "I'll gladly pay you Tuesday, for a hamburger today."]
