Description:
Red Gem Period 1773 Virginia Halfpenny
Single Finest Certified as Red
1773 1/2P Virginia Halfpenny, Period MS65 Red PCGS. Seven harp strings. Newman 25-M. In its appearance in the Heritage Detroit ANA Auction of July 1994, as lot 5008, the present piece was cataloged as "undoubtedly the finest example we can remember having seen. Struck on a highly polished planchet prior to striking, the coin has an exceptional brightness and freshness of color that is truly amazing. The bright red color is accented by brown only on the highest portions of the design elements on each side. Showing an unerring eye for quality, the consignor, David M. Faraday, purchased this coin from the Little Mint of San Francisco on November 7, 1967 for the princely sum of $75!" To this we can only add that the halfpenny is semi-prooflike, lacks noticeable marks, and is housed in a green label holder. Listed on page 43 of the 2008 Guide Book. Combined PCGS and NGC population: 1 in 65 Red, 0 finer as Red (3/08). (PCGS# 242)
