||1722 1/2P Rosa Americana Halfpenny, VTILE DVLCI VG10 NGC. Martin 1.1-A.1, W-1214, R.5. The obverse legend is GEORGIUS.DEI .GRATIA.REX. On the reverse, it is ROSA AMERI:VTILE.DVLCI.1722. The reverse die is the same as Norweb: 2396, with the straight die break near the L in VIILE. This example is well centered, all of the legends are full, and it has deep red-brown patina with rust-colored accents noted mainly near the reverse borders. There is mild porosity seen in some of the fields, and the rims are uneven and imperfectly produced on both sides, due to apparent die erosion. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
