    Your coin is either a Penny, Half Penny or a Farthing of George IV of Great Britain. It was struck between 1825 -1830.

    If is is half dollar-sized, it is a penny.

    If it is a bit bigger than a quarter dollar, it is a half penny.

    If it is nickel-sized, it is a farthing.

    Copper.

    This is an 1826 dated Penny which has laid on a shelf on my desk for many years:

  • Wow! Thanks very much, it's nickel size so a farthing.. greatly appreciate the help-Daj Beautiful coin btw!

    No, the one I posted would be considered damaged.

    I do have an nice uncirculated brown (no red) example in an ICG slab (Independent Coin Graders). It is also dated 1826.

  • Just being polite haha but okay

  • Hey BillDugan
    If you collect Great Britain coins, give me a shout. I have about 15 to 20 primarily late 1800,s copper. I don't collect anything but U.S. so if you are interested, I would consider trades. I like anything Capped Bust or Seated Liberty.
