Halfpenny #308 Bust, left GOD SAVE THE KING


16 96

The king is George II or III(take your pick, I'd go with III), just silly date & legend like many evasives, which ensured they would not be confused with real regal-coinage, thereby removing any danger of counterfeiting charges being laid.

Probably by Thomas Bagnall(1781-1830/), die-sinker, die-stamper, piercer and toy-maker of Birmingham, later London, here is one of my medals by Bagnall.
