Have just started to add my half pennies to my Omni collection, unfortunatly this is not a strong part LOL the Edward VII are all quite worn this was due to a thin rim on the britannia side of the coin, causing them to wear very badly. I also do have a couple of William & Mary but the dates are not visable and again quite worn so have not added them :mad:

The 1/2 pennies sure did get circulated around. You can hardly ever find a "modern" coin with the kind of wear that is considered normal on the older coppers. Very nice collection.
