Diminutive James I Silver Halfpenny, As Found in Jamestown

SOLD

Details

England. (1604-19) silver halfpenny of James I. Fleur de lis mintmark. Choice Extremely Fine. A superb specimen, with good lustre remaining on attractively toned surfaces, showing a good deal of golden color enlivening the medium gray. Barely worn and nicely struck, with a complete mintmark and pretty good centering. This is a popular type for early American coin enthusiasts, as a nearly identical silver halfpenny of James I was discovered on the site of James Fort in Jamestown, Virginia, representing the smallest precious metal coin ever recovered in an American archaeological site, not to mention one of the first coins found during the Jamestown excavations. Tiny (10 mm) but attractive.
