.In the UK I would expect to pick them up for 5 to 10.

Actually no - I paid 30 for that one a few years back, but still a pretty good deal I think. Ought to make 60+ in the UK now, probably even more in the US.

Yes, at 30, there's certainly decent profit to be had Paddy. It's a nice example, and free of the edge knocks so often seen on cartwheels.

As I stated previously, I'm definitely no expert when it comes to your cartwheel pennies but I'm wondering is this a coin that has been readily faked in the past ... and if yes, what are the tell tail signs?

i believe the hardest for newbies to ID is the re-strikes of these coins however most mints will try not to restrike them on copper or brass, so that most collectors know that its just a re-striked (proofs that are actually from the 18th century are rare and expensive).

I thought maybe these two pics of my for sure 100% authentic coin may assist you in verifying yours. Yours do appear to look quite nice.

IIRC, the pennies are extremely common (and circulated a lot, so are frequently found very worn), while the twopences are relatively scarce (and didn't circulate anywhere near as much, so tend to show up in much better condition).

I have about two or three of the pennies, which I paid less than 1 for each.
I have yet to find a twopence within my budget; if they really cost 10+, that's not surprising. The type is on my long-term wishlist, though.
