Would you please post a picture of both the Obverse
and Reverse flat on a table. Don't even know what
year that coin is. There are different style heads for
different years.
I can see something that doesn't look right but
need better pictures to confirm.
Thank You

PS-
You can't go by the "U" as some years it was rounded.
If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving is not for you.

No panic - Georgius with a "U" is correct for Halfpennies dated 1740 to 1745. Georgivs with a "V" is correct for 1729 to 1739 and also 1746 to 1754.
Don't ask me why!
and by the way, welcome to CCF.
