1806 Farthing

Hello there,

 

I am a young lad and I have only recently started collecting coins.

 

I have recently found a 1806 Farthing ( I believe) within my collection of coins.

 

The coin seems unusual to me. First of all, the coin seems upside down (stick with me here, I have not gone mad!), when you look at King George III, then flip the coin over as you would any other coin, the Britannia is upside down.

 

ALSO, the coin i found on google has the words BRITANNIA written on it. well the one I have only has BRITANN. It does not look as if the "IA" of BRITANNIA has been rubbed off or anything.

 

Can anyone help me with this at all? I have added photos of the coin for people to have a look at. The red line drawn on shows where the words BRITANN start and finish.

Thank you in advance.

 

Karl
