John Wilkinson - Iron Master half penny, 1790. These were struck by Matthew Boulton and were the 2nd issue dated 1790; they were of a reduced weight from the originals (36 to the pound rather than 32). Design (man at a forge), was retained from J.G. Hancock who had struck them up to 1789. The edge inscription is: "WILLEY SNEDSHILL BERSHAM BRADLEY". Dia. ~ 29 mm; 12.02 gm. If the edge is not as above, or 'Wilkinson' is misspelled as 'Wilkison' or 'Wilkenson' then the piece is one of the very many contemporary counterfeits. Reverse types other than Vulcan, Forge, or Barge are also counterfeits. Others wanted to take advantage of the acceptability of the Wilkinson half pennies, others made alternate reverse types for the collector market in those times.

Acquired better one of the same date, so the photo has been repalced with this more detailed example.
