United States of America, Counterfeit Halfpenny Very Well Worn

The Halfpennies of King George II and George III were heavily counterfeited at the time, because of a shortage of small change. Many of these underweight pieces were circulated in the American Colonies. There was a great shortage of coins there and any coin was better than none. The American dealers have been promoting these coins for some time. we have been putting them away for the last couple of years and we are now ready to offer them for sale, at what we think are much more realistic prices. Most of the coins are King George III but there are some King George II as well. All are counterfeit copper Halfpennies with the bust of the Monarch on one side and a seated figure of Britannia on the other side. Monarch as well as date are as they come, but we can offer them in very well worn. These were actually struck to look like used coins. In America they sell them for some incredible prices, we think our price is much more realistic. The more you order the more different dates and types we will try and give you, but supplies are limited. Please no dealer orders from the States at these prices.

George IV, Maundy Penny Unc

This piece is part of a hoard that laid untouched for over 100 years. A collector hoarded the Sterling Silver Maundy Pennies and put them away in his basement only to be recently discovered and sold to us. The Maundy penny is the coin that most collectors trying to complete date sets are looking for. It is so small that they usually get lost. The quality of these coins is outstanding and they are being offered for much less than the current catalogue price. We bought them right, we are going to sell them right. Illustrated here is the George IV Maundy Penny in Uncirculated Condition.
