1751 "Defiant Head" counterfeit halfpenny. George II. AK-57. Choice Extremely Fine. Far and away the best example of this crude and distinctive early counterfeit I've ever seen, with remarkable lustrous gloss on the choice chocolate brown surfaces. Beautiful and essentially problem free, with just a little harmless buildup within devices and a little nick on George's cheek. Slightly later die state than the Anton-Kesse plate coin. The last time I had an example of this variety, it sold quickly. This one is nicer.
