    Can do a few here.

    1859 halfpenny

    Decimal pattern for 1/20th shilling/halfpenny. Peck 1981 & Freeman 686 refer.

    Pattern decimal halfpenny in aluminium-bronze on a small, dumpy flan. Peck 2000 & Freeman 706A refer. ex-Peck collection

    1859 decimal halfpenny(?), Peck 2017 & Freeman 726. ex Terner collection

    1859 pattern halfpenny struck in cupro-nickel with an incuse dotted security edge. Peck 2037 & Freeman 745 refer. ex Nobleman, Brand & Freeman collections. The small spots of wax to both sides are from when it was illustrated in the Nobleman sale (1922).

    If you send it for grading and "conservation" they could carefully remove both the wax spots and the provenance they indicate. :rolleyes:

    Missed one.
    1859 pattern decimal halfpenny, Freeman 689. This is a Peck miss, as the coin was illustrated in the Nobleman sale (1922). ex Nobleman, Brand and Freeman collections. This was one of only half a dozen decimal patterns not in the Norweb collection, which I suspect was due to it having been listed in the 1967 Circular as a Peck 2002 - which she already had. Freeman correctly identified it as an unrecorded type.

    Acquired by me in a Heritage sale in June 2006, it had by that time acquired a label as a Peck 1983, which it clearly isn't because the oak wreath on that one goes in an anti-clockwise direction, compared to this one which is clockwise. Peck listed 3 Peck 1983s in the BM, Mint Museum and Bank of England Museum, but whether they are all correctly assigned, I don't know. So to summarise, the population lists have a P1983 (which wasn't and I'm not aware of any more) and no Freeman 689s (with this the only one I am aware of but is no longer entombed). Previously slabbed as a 63.

    A feature of this and the Peck 1981/2 patterns is the flan lamination. The mint was clearly having an issue with sheet/flan preparation, or striking force required for the thinner flans at this time. Others may also have been affected.
