1773 1/2 P Virginia Halfpenny, No Period, Newman 9-B, W-1420, R.4, VF25 NGC. 110.5 grains. Die alignment: 180?. This circulated piece features consistent coloration, a slightly uneven strike, and a few old nicks and scratches that have long since toned over. Virginia halfpennies are the only Colonial-era coins routinely encountered in Mint State, and while those are exciting, there is a certain charm to pieces that served their intended purpose as coinage. Listed on page 47 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
