GEORGE II Halfpenny 1730 Extra stop on reverse stop before N
HomeGEORGE II Halfpenny 1730 Extra stop on reverse stop before N
Reverse 1 with what looks like no stop.
I brought this coin because at the time it looked like no stops on either side then i found another example and i was very surprised at the findings. It does appear to have a stop after the first N of Britannia, the extra stop does match the rest of the stops obverse and reverse perfectly in size and shape.. on this example the stops are worn, but once you know exactly where to look they can be found, but only the slightest ghosting.
The next example listed, is a better example in every way. Halfpenny grades about fine, and is most unusual and does repeat its self on his son ( George III ) who the King never got on with. Please click on link GIIIH73. George III halfpenny 1773 Extra stop on reverse stop after first N
