Lot of 2 British coppers (halfpenny 1797 and a SSC token?). 12.4 and 3.3 grams. The larger coin (halfpenny) is thick and solid, with nice details (minimal corrosion), but the other coin is thin and worn and only shows enough detail to attribute to the South Seas Company (silver) issues of 1723 (token or contemporary counterfeit in copper?), rare provenance. Recovered from: Unidentified late-1700s wreck in the English Channel
