    Circulating Counterfeits of the Americas (COAC Proceedings no. 14)

    /2000

    Highlight: It shows that 1787 counterfeit brass half dollars were circulating in Maine in 1813. This fits in very nicely with my dates for the brass counterfeit 2 reales. Taxay’s argument (Taxay 1963, 153) that because these counterfeits are not listed in Riddell they are more likely to be fakes of the late nine- teenth century than circulating counterfeits, is not convincing. We know from Davignon that there were many, many circulating counter- feits that Riddell missed. Riddell listed 37 varieties; Davignon expand- ed the number to 188. The flowing hair counterfeits have many char- acteristics that are more suited to counterfeits than fakes made to fool collectors: they are in base metals; they show severe wear; they are often scratched up, in an attempt to pierce the silvering. The die axis of all

    Highlight: (1) The plate of the 1787 counterfeit halfpence and its tie to the Betts' article are very important. However, this leaves us with one specimen mentioned twice by Betts In his article that has not been identified. This is the 1781 dated counterfeit. I have recently come across two specimens of a 1781 dated counterfeit. They are from different dies, but they are stylistically very similar. They also resemble the plate of the 1785 counterfeit (BETTS-4). I have found one other reference to the possible American origin of a 1781 counterfeit, in the Pine Tree Auction Co. sale of October 18, 1975, Lot 592: 1781. Not in Viack, not |n Taxay. Not Machin's Mills work, but has been attributed to "Bungtown" alias Westerly, R.I., site of notorious counterfeiting operations. (The 1784 pictured by Viack
