Good challenge!




1792 Halfpenny Conder, Inclined Plane and Coalbrookedale Bridge

2 Points UK - Keighley, Coalbrookedale
5 Points - Halfpenny
3 Points - 1792
5 Points - A conder
1 Point - Building (The thing containing the inclined Plane)
1 Point - More than 1 date (1779, 1789 and 1792)
3 Points - Copper

Total 20 points

I love these coins, its like back in the late 1700s bragging about how modern and advanced everything was in the UK was a sport!

In reality, they were covering up a gross infrastructure failure, a government that could not even maintain a steady coin supply unless it was fractional guineas (Like the govt just issuing $50 notes and nothing else today).

I could have shown many of my numerous 1860s NZ tokens - but this one gains more points and everyone knows Ironbridge.

I love COINS!!!
