    Exact diameter of a U.S. half dollar. When a seller can't get 50 cents for the coin, they roll them up with their halves. Still a neat find.

    Nice old find regardless it being foreign, 151 years of history. Sometime you wonder, " if only this coin could talk", where has it been, who else may have touched it, amazing find.

    Yes, I have found several of these in half dollar MWRs, although not nearly as old as Avago’s.

    In that condition it could be worth £7.20

    Great find. Given its age, history and condition, I would actually take that over a silver half.

    Also known as a "vulgar penny" as to the position of the trident.

    I've found a bunch of them over the years but this one is certainly the oldest! I'll take it for 50 cents!
