Halfpennies

Halfpennies, in many ways share much of the inherent allure of the Penny. There is however one key difference, in the milled series one can obtain a Copper Halfpenny of Charles II in 1672, for the Penny one would have to wait until 1797. Earlier Anglo-Saxon Halfpennies are regarded as almost always as rare and are seldom seen on the open market. A chronological discerning milled Halfpenny collection would see the collector encoutering many exotic types (not least the Tin issues of James II and William & Mary, or the almost mythical 1862 die letter A, B, or C Victorian type).

Ostensibly a well executed Halfpenny assemblage may seem quite a simple venture. However to obtain the key types and find an acceptable grade would take a flexible and patient commitment.
