Description:
Desirable MS64 Brown 1766 Pitt Halfpenny
1766 1/2P Pitt Halfpenny MS64 Brown PCGS. Betts-519. Breen-251. Chocolate-brown and medium brown toning compete for territory across this faintly prooflike near-Gem. Crisply struck save for the customary slight softness near the right end of the ship and on the hair over Pitt's ear. Struck a couple of degrees off toward 9 o'clock, but all legends are fully intact. Remarkably smooth despite a thin diagonal line on the right obverse field. A charming example of this Early American favorite. Listed on page 48 of the 2008 Guide Book. Population: 3 in 64, 1 finer (3/08).
From The Liberty Collection of American Colonial Coinage, Part Three. (PCGS# 236)
