King George Vl 1920's Half Penny Piece Sprayed Gold By Soldiers.
A lovely rare antique King George the 5th half Penny piece dated 1920's found metal detecting. The bust of King George is still visible along with the Latin words V DIE GRA BRITT OMN REX, the rest unfortunately is unclear. The coin appears to have been sprayed gold by spillers during the 1st world war, the item was found metal detecting ear a pill box & was found with other King George shillings. Dating from 1920's -1950's. Was most likely sprayed gold to pay the French or device the Germans if the coin fell into the wrong hands. May have also been a gold trap. To encourage the enemy to appear at the fortified location. The royal Britannia is still visible on reverse but shows signs if wear. The coin is dated 1920's & despite being sprayed is copper. The coin is quite large & is 3cm in diameter.
The total weight of the coin is 9.3g.
The item is sold as seen.
