​If I'm not mistaken, that looks like a harp mintmark which would make it Group D, struck at the Tower Mint, London between 1632 and 1633. Here's a scan of my 2017 Spink:



... and here's a link to the Group D halfgroat on Numista: https://en.numista.com/catalogue/pieces44830.html

Hope this helps :)

Edit: Just had a closer look and it would appear that yours is Sp#2829.

Oh and by the way, that's a beautiful example of a coin approaching 400 years old!
