1709 halfpenny to go with my penny. Much more reasonably priced, this one. :)

Very unusual to see a full nine on these (in 1709) as usually the tail is missing when the casting tag is removed.

Well if they'd done a better job of removing the tag on this one, I guess mine would be gone too.  ;D

The halfpenny has a large die flaw or crack. The progress of this can be seen on my page Atholl coinage

Note you can click the image to see in larger detail ...although I see I will have to replace these images as they are quite dark.

Yes I've seen those Mal. Is it indicative of a later restrike?

Can you tell me how you differentiate between the types of pennies please?

It seems the halfpenny die cracked and steadily got worse as it was used over time.

Alan Kelly wrote a monograph on these which is a little difficult to put in a a few short words. mostly to do with the size of the plume on the crown [3 different]

While with the reverse, one foot touches base of Q another touches base of E the other foot near dot; while the other reverse touches the circle of Q and foot passes through base of E the other foot near S.

Thanks Mal. Would you concur that mine is most like your type 1? I think that's the closest match.  :-\

And although not coin related I found this on Google Earth, on the Calf of Man.  :)

What would "IIHE" mean on a Virenium 1 Pound coin ?

DMIHE is (I seem to recall) Daily Mail International Home Exhibition

DMIHEN is (I seem to recall) Daily Mail International Home Exhibition North

Wikipedia says that the The "International Home Exhibition" was "devised by the Daily Mail newspaper in 1908 and continued to be run by the Daily Mail up until 2009".

Thanks Mr Paul Baker

I.I.H.E. = International Ideal Home Exhibition.

Apparently the International Ideal Home Exhibition moves around as the 2015 International Ideal Home Exhibition was a 7 day event held from 26th April to the 2nd May 2015 at the Dhahran International Exhibition Center (DIEC) in Dammam, Saudi Arabia.
