What is this George II coin?

I recently came upon this very worn copper coin with King George II, but the reverse doesn't seem to match any copper British coins I know of. The reverse has a crown with a shield or something of that nature below it and possibly some text that says "1C" or "1G." Does anyone know what this is? I've attached color photos and possibly some more detailed black and white scans.

Hey! What you have is probably a pence or half pence George the second copper coin. These were minted in the mid-to-late 18th century and are pretty common. I have a few in my collection. Nice find.

Wow, near Basal State. I wouldn't even attempt to identify it from your picture.

I think its a one pence coin from a Maundy set during his reign. It will have a one and a crown over it. In good condition this coin with the other three in the set goes for nice money. But i mean a MS 65 and above.

The reverse doesn't seem to match any regular issue British coins; and being made of copper precludes it from being Maundy. It has a reverse that resembles that of some Evasion tokens from the 1750s-1790s, but the obverse doesn't seem to match any.

Then it must be a British Cooper codder token.. They made thousands with them on the token.
