Ireland. 1776 circulating counterfeit halfpenny. Choice Very Fine.

SOLD

Details

Ireland. 1776 circulating counterfeit halfpenny. Choice Very Fine. 119.8 grains. A beautiful example of this distinctive variety, with glossy and problem-free dark chocolate brown surfaces. Bold denticles frame the base of the reverse, somewhat softly struck above IBE of HIBERNIA. I've seen other specimens from this die marriage around, but have never handled one this nice. Counterfeit Irish halfpence saw plentiful circulation in early America, indeed, one need look no further than the undertypes of Vermont coppers (particularly Ryder-18, Ryder-25, and Ryder-28) for proof. This date is, of course, of special interest to American collectors, but it is also the most elusive date among genuine specimens of this design type. This is a particularly pretty example.
