I would say this is correctly a "Counterfeit copy" rather than an "Evasion" as the design is basically correct for a genuine halfpenny of that date, just made unofficially and light weight.
Value is always a guessing game for these. There are a large number of contemporary counterfeits out there - they say at the time of the new issue in 1797/1799 there were more counterfeits in circulation than genuine ones. The OP is nice being double-struck, but the design is fairly standard. Best place to sell such things is in the US, where the interest is much higher than in the UK. I would guess at 10 to 20 on Ebay, but may go much better if 2 or more collectors take a fancy to it.

I've seen similar double-struck counterfeits easily go north of $100 USD to American buyers on Ebay. Here is such a listing that is going on right now.

Yours is a little more dinged-up, but has good details and would still attract strong interest in my opinion. A nice example in any case!
