    Found my oldest coin to date!! Confirmed the coin... George I halfpenny 1723

    Thanks to Don in SJ (for giving me the specs) and for JC for weighing and measuring I can confirm that the George I coin (1723) is a halfpenny and not a farthing like I thought...The weight and size is right for the halfpenny...Here are a couple of new photos....I am afraid to clean too hard on a coin that old...

    Congrats on finding such an early King George II copper with a readable date! I have found many King George Coppers but all except two are so corroded that you can't read the date. The two with dates are 1737 & 1738, so you have me beat. WTG!

    Congrats on your find, it looks like a Halfpenny and not the Farthing, judging the size with your fingers

    Halfpenny , roughly a tad over 1 inch in diameter
    Farthing , roughly .9 inch, so just a bit under

    What a great find! Our end of the state doesn't yield too many like that .
