    I think it may be a 1774 George III halfpenny. You might be able to get the date clearer - maybe just try a little soap and water and rub with your thumb. I would also use a bit of baking soda but I get in trouble here sometimes for my cleaning techniques

    Almost looks like Picasso's version of Britannia. But go with George III.

    it would help someone (Don or IP), I'm going by look & feel. The rev head is high & poorly defined, probably a 1775 counterfiet.

    Yuppers, the vast majority of KGIII's are dated 1775 if readable, 1773 second commonest, I cannot tell the date but almost 100% of all KGIII's I have ever seen posted on the forums found in the states are counterfeits. (Ground founds) I have seen one regal posted here a year or so ago....

    For undug coins this is true. For dug coins this is untrue.
    The value will increase with judicious cleaning."
