Excellent Victoria piece, Paddy!
I'm guessing 1/2d, but there's really no way to tell its denomination without eyeballing it for size, am I right?
Best to all ~

Yes - the 1841 and 1772 are both Halfpennies, the Woods 1723 is a farthing.

It is difficult to sport the differences between the Victorian coppers without scale, but not impossible. On the pennies, the Queen's nose points between the C and T of Victoria. On the halfpennies it is between the T and O. On the farthings it is to the C of Victoria and much closer to it.

First post by me in a while, just one coin.





I have a dozen of these in "average" condition - but how many do you see in AU condition. Because its a common year (74 million) and base metal - people were less likely to put them aside "Hey I have this 1905 halfcrown! " "So what I have a 1948 one "

Anyway it is shiny and looks as nice as my 1940s sylver halfcrowns!
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

Great 1948 halfcrown, Princetane!

You're right, you hardly ever see Uncirculated British George VI cupro-nickel coins. Everyone was putting away the silver ones and the cupro-nickel ones just got ignored! I am just old enough to remember that in the late 1960s practically every single halfcrown in circulation in England was dated 1948 - there was a huge mintage that year but nobody saved any!

Too true NumisRob

It is the same here, every Halfcrown in NZ in the 60s was dated 1950 and almost none were not VG to high Fine, my 2 in the downunder thread were almost unique.

I think early Cupronickel looks a lot nicer when it shines, Cupronickel like silver gets quite dull when it wears.

JBuck, I would have won more coins to show, but either I get outbid now or I forget the closing time and the auction closes before I expect it too.

Any success with auction wins ought to be commended. The misses are a part of the journey I expect.

I have only bid on a few, won none. All my successful online purchases have been BIN.

That is stunning a real lovely piece.

1000 years old and from a King known for his attempt to control the tide. Canute was also a Dane and king of Denmark!

To be fair to Cnut, he didn't try to control the tide. His obsequious courtiers kept flattering him as the most powerful king in the world - so powerful that even nature obeyed him. He went to the beach to prove them wrong!

Nice coin by the way. Was that from the DNW auction?

Paddy, no this was not purchased from that auction.

My favorite notable factoid about Cnut; As King of England, Denmark and Norway, he brought a long absent period of relative peace and a reprieve by defending England from Viking invaders. Most of whom were ironically under his own command. :)
