George III. Farthing. 1775. Counterfeit/Evasion

£68.00 £72.00

This is an excellent example and a very good counterfeit when compared to the genuine item, with the major difference being the weight (2.67g) and striking weaknesses. Also the date and lettering are larger than normal. Good very fine for the type, struck in an unknown alloy that appears to be lighter in colour than normal, and unusual in this condition. Also a second similar in VF (2.85g)
