Great Britain Penny and Two Pence (Cartwheel) 1797
Brtiannia looks a little more spiffy today, but she graces most of England's early copper coinage, including the large cartwheel pennys and two pence coins.
Thanks to Tony Clayton for use of his coin photo.
It is time to get your meansuring stick, Ruthie. If your cartwheel measures 36 mm, it is a penny. If it measures 42 mm it is 2 pence. The two pence is more valuable.
