I was interested in seeing how many were like myself and love the small ones.

One of my favorite collections is my three pences. They are hard to view but worth the effort. Great details in almost all

Very nice coins. I have a small collection of them and really enjoy them. Six pence as well.

For extra fun, try the three halfpence (1 1/2d) - a pretty short lived series for which pieces don't show up much.

 

Like this:

I much prefer the hammered small stuff, though.

You know I hadn't even thought about the hammered. And I must admit there is a certain beauty in them.

I have considered the three half pence,but unfortunately for me have never held one.

With all the littles being shown I am seeing all kind of directions to move my collection towards. Think I may just have to purge the big ones and increase the hunt for littles.

You are absolutely right. The six is just as lovely as the three. I envy your very beautiful 78. Is the direction of bust a different region or a different serie?

The bust direction is a change of monarch. As these are small, lots of them were pierced to put them on charm bracelets.

I never knew the direction was change of monarch,thank you geordie. That answers something that I had often wondered.

And now I know why so many are holed.

I for one am not bothered by holes, I collect for my enjoyment and keep culls as well as nice coins. As long as it is appealing to my eyes, one makes me as happy as the other. I have multiple coins of some and steadily hunting what I don't have.

I just love little coins for some reason and I have quite a few from Great Britain. Unfortunately, I haven't photographed any of my little coins, but I will try to in the very near future and then post the coins here. I enjoyed everyone's photographs.

I thought I'd add this Henry VIII penny. At 13 m.m. I can say it's small. Past through many hands and poorly struck, it's still beautiful to me.

That's a nice coin. Has a bunch of wear but like you I'd be focused on how many hands it's passed through and maybe what it purchased.
