Delightful 1723 Rosa Americana Halfpenny, Crowned Rose, MS64 Brown

1723 1/2P Rosa Americana Halfpenny, Crown MS64 Brown PCGS. Ex: Eliasberg. Breen-140. Crowned Rose. No stop after 3. Although popular with collectors today, William Wood's Rosa Americana coinage met with disdain among merchants in the Colonies, who refused to accept them. This impeccably preserved example features lovely chestnut and mahogany patina throughout. The strike is razor-sharp and the bust shows excellent definition. The surfaces are exceptionally clean, and a loupe locates only a couple of minor planchet flaws. A remarkable, attractive, and pristine specimen. Listed on page 41 of the 2009 Guide Book. (NGC ID# 2ASL, PCGS# 119)
