    Scarce St. Patrick Halfpenny
    VF30, Vlack 1-A

    (1670-75) 1/2P St. Patrick Halfpenny VF30 PCGS. CAC. Vlack 1-A, Breen-200. Much scarcer than their farthing counterparts, the St. Patrick halfpennies were struck in England and later imported to America by Mark Newby in 1681. They circulated in New Jersey as "coppers," valued by weight, through the end of the 18th century. This is a chocolate-brown example with pleasing, problem-free surfaces. Although circulated, the types are clear and the harp strings are distinct. Listed on page 39 of the 2012 Guide Book. Population: 6 in 30, 14 finer (11/11).
