Delightful 1766 Pitt Halfpenny, MS62 Brown

1766 1/2P Pitt Halfpenny MS62 Brown PCGS. Betts-519, Breen-251. Believed to have been engraved by James Smither after sketches by Paul Revere, these popular tokens honor Sir William Pitt, who defended the rebellious Colonies' opposition to the Stamp Act in the House of Commons. Splendid mahogany patina drapes the surfaces of this well-preserved specimen. There is a planchet crack on the left of the obverse that passes through to the reverse, and a small planchet flaw in the E in RESTORER is also noted. Otherwise, the surfaces are exceptionally clean and unabraded, with minimal weakness on the hair and ship, as typically seen. A splendid example of this interesting American-made token. Listed on page 48 of the 2009 Guide Book. (PCGS# 236)
