My name is Clem Schettino, my coin buddies call me Copperclem. I have constructed this website primarily to sell my personal collections of Contemporary Counterfeit (Non Regal) British & Irish Halfpence & Farthings. I have a rather extensive collection which I have been aggressively collecting, researching and studying for well over 15 years. Due to an early retirement the time has come to sell.
Just so there is no misunderstanding these Contemporary Counterfeits made in the eighteenth century were produced to serve as money then, not now, and are genuine to the period not modern copies to fool collectors.
Over the next couple of months I'll be uploading my collection so please check back from time to time. Keep an eye on the date below and if you have questions or have something for sale or trade, please feel free to contact me.
Special Pricing Notice…
I realize many prices for contemporary counterfeit halfpence and farthings have softened lately due to an influx of material form friends either passing or changing direction.
I haven’t had the time to go back and reduce my prices so if you see something here you like but would like to pay less please feel free to email me and ask for a discount.
This offer will be available for the next two weeks or so.
