    KGIII? Counterfeit? Tory Copper? Other?

    In the woods of RI I found this coin that is so worn I can barely distinguish outlines using foil rubbings. My best guess is a King George III half penny as it looks like the profile is facing right, and the reverse has a woman with her arms up, elbows bent....putting it at around 1770-1775.

    However, I have read that counterfeits were rampant at this time and I suspect this may be a counterfeit as well. It seems smaller and lighter than it should be.

    Maybe I have been looking it it too long as I now see the profile in the incoming stormy sky!Click image for larger version.

    Any input or other ideas of what the coin might be are welcome as I am just offering my best guess as to what it is.
