Tom,
That would be a Long Neck family member (LN-1A). BTW, halfpennies on farthing planchet do exist but most of the ones I've seen have been cut down manually. (Post Strike Damage)

A 1773 that I think was cast. The missing-metal areas just don't look like the usual rusted-out areas to me (could be wrong). Some kind of raised ridge from the spear to the face, and more raised spots on the obverse (under V, in front of the chin, and by the ribbons).

TerryT,
I think your piece may be a grounder... what your seeing is a die break on the reverse. Here's Mike Ringo specimen of the same variety!

Sometimes a grounder turns into an extra base hit. It looks much better in hand so I'll classify it as a beat-the-throw, slide-in double.

Here's what looks like a long-necked 1774 (dipped). Large letters and a high 4. Could be a small clip under the king.

TerryT,
That one is the Coin-Y family member... This family was first documented by Peck, as one of the 5 counterfeit halfpence listed within his encyclopedic. This variety is classified as a family mule, which mean the obverse is Romanhead and reverse is Coin-Y. Enjoy...

I've been having a tough time trying to ID this regal evasion, at least with respect to Atkins' listings.

I can (somewhat) discern the following for the legends:

Obv GEORGE RULES.
Rev BRITAN NIA. Ex ?

Uncertain of the punctuation due to the wear. I initially believed it to be Atkins 159, but after viewing an image of that variety it is quite different. A google image search yielded a variety having the same obverse with a NORTH WALES reverse of an unreadable date.

Any thoughts are appreciated!

Picked up this one last week - a fairly standard 1775 contemporary counterfeit but with surprisingly good detail.
The blob on the left of the obverse seems to be something melted onto the coin rather than verdigris. I have tried various solvents and heating to around 100C without shifting any of it!

PaddyB,
That's a Long Top Seven family member which is briefly discussed in one of the chapter of the book. "Contemporary Counterfeit Halfpenny and Farthing Families". Congrats on your new acquisition...

I was surprised to come across one of these and jumped at the chance to pick it up! A Duke of Yorke "Evasion Hybrid" with an evasion obverse and contemporary counterfeit reverse. The crude Irish-type reverse is evidently a die from the Simian family of counterfeits with its characteristic crudity and hand-cut lettering.

Listed as Cobwright D.0020/H.0110 and Atkins 97.

No worries! I've been getting back into contemporary counterfeits as of late. Do you happen to have an example of the Irish Simian obverse that pairs with the 1769 reverse?

Also, are those images from your own collection? The Duke of Yorke - Britannia example is fantastic.

Cheers,
Will

Sorry. Given the thread title the temptation was too great.
