George III Counterfeit Halfpenny Very Fine

Counterfeit George III halfpennies from the 1770s are intriguing coins from a time of economic turmoil in Britain. These forgeries, often made from base metals and sometimes lighter than the genuine copper halfpennies were created to address a shortage of small change. Despite their unofficial nature, they circulated widely and are often almost identical to the genuine ones. These counterfeits are just as fascinating and widely collected as genuine halfpennies and serve as a reminder of the ingenuity and resourcefulness during a period of economic hardship. We have a small group available in Very Fine condition, better than usually seen.
