William III (1694-1702) Pattern Halfpenny

Ref 31/105Price £2,250.00

1695?, laureate and cuirassed bust right, type 1, GVLIELMVS DEI GRATIA, rev. Britannia seated left, BRITAN NIA, date in exergue, edge plain, BMC-; S.-, last digit in date is indistinct, believed one of five known
The last digit of the date had until recently been thought to be a 6. However observations made by numismatic author David Groom came to the conclusion that it is dated 1695. It is possible that this is an early issue, and then withdrawn as the legend DEI GRATIA appearing for the first time on a base coin would have been considered unacceptable by Parliament. Ex. Johnstone, purchased by A H Baldwin c. 1973; R Shuttlewood, Spink NC, February 2001 (MC0226); Dr B Nicholson, purchased by Colin Cooke, 2003. Collections.

1808, laureate draped bust right, date below, rev. Britannia seated left, edge grained in deep groove, BMC 1346 [PU] (this coin); S.3780, the only known example,
Ex. C. Wilson Peck Collection [this coin] and A H Baldwin. Peck states "The rev. is from an ordinary current 1807 die. As the last figure of the date shows no sign of alteration from a 6 or 7, a new working die must have been specially made, and this would explain the proof-like surface of the obv."
