|Service Catalog #||451|
1772 1/2 P Georgivs III, Machin's Mills Halfpenny, Vlack 5-72A, W-7710, R.6 -- Obv Damage -- NGC Details. VF. Die alignment: 150?. A very scarce variety of Machin's Mills halfpenny, and a more pleasing example than suggested by the designation. The surfaces are smooth and the strike reasonably strong. The obverse has a few old scratches, most notable across the neck. A planchet fissure at 12 o'clock should not be confused with deliberate post-strike damage. Overall, a rather attractive piece. Listed on page 69 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
