Where I present a coin I know nothing about and I seek your guidance to identify what it is. I purchased this coin in a lot and it was packed in a tube with a bunch of other Canadian coins so naturally I suspect it’s Canadian. The date appears to be 180... idk, maybe 1804. It’s very hard to read. Any assistance will be appreciated. Further, and help on a possible value will be welcomed. Thanks.

    Both of your posts have photo that are very difficult to view.

    Looks like a George III halfpenny. How big is it?

    What you have @h.e.-pennypacker is likely a 1806/1807 Great Britain Halfpenny or Penny, depending on the diameter and weight.

  7. Thanks for the help, the coin is just a touch larger than this 1950 Canadian Half Cent.

    Presumably an 1850 half cent? That's 28mm, the George III halfpenny (1806-7) is 30mm

    I agree, 1806/7 George III halfpenny.

    Oldhoopster It seemed like a good idea at the time.

    As others have said it is a British half penny from 1806 or 1807. The value of a coin like this is minimal. You can find low grade examples with visible dates in 25 cent to $1 junk boxes at larger coin shows.

    Sorry, but even though it's cool to have a 200+ year old coin, the 2x2 you use for storage is probably worth more than the coin.
