    '1778' Machin's Mills Halfpenny, AU50
    Vlack 11-78A, W-7820

    '1778' 1/2 P Machin's Mills Halfpenny AU50 PCGS. Vlack 11-78A, W-7820, R.3. Machin's Mills halfpence are typically seen in low grades with soft details, but this example is unusually sharp and well-preserved. Golden-brown patina covers both sides, with the occasional hint of cherry-red. Several minor mint-made laminations and slight porosity barely affect design definition. An excellent example of this scarce variety. Listed on page 69 of the 2020 Guide Book.
    Ex: Long Beach Signature (Heritage, 5/2008), lot 1951; Los Angeles Signature (Heritage, 8/2009), lot 9.
    From The Poulos Family Collection, Part II.
