19 th C. (1812?) - Bust of Admiral Horatio Nelson left with the legend "ENGLAND EXPECTS EVERY MAN TO DO HIS DUTY ". Reverse depicts the famous HMS Victory under sail to the right. Legend "BRITISH NAVAL HALPPENNY" (misspelled 'Halfpenny') with "1812" in exergue. The edge is engrailed. Very nice example and impressive historical half penny. The date 1812 saw significant battles against Napoleon Bonaparte and his final downfall. [This type shares obverse die w/Withers 1066 (Sheffield); 1811 / PAYABLE / AT NO. 18 / NORFOLK ROW / SHEFFIELD]. Admiral Nelson was the victor at the Battle of Trafalgar and others. An associated piece of General Wellington can be seen in World>North America>Canada
Does anybody else see an optical illusion where the ship can tilt up and then tilt down? I really must stay further away from the Bourbon.
