    1722 1/2 P Rosa Americana Halfpenny, DEI GRATIA / UTILE, Martin 3.6-C.2, W-1222, R.4, AU53 NGC. 66.8 grains. The surfaces of this piece are mostly brown, with only occasional hints of brass, leading Eric P. Newman to conduct specific gravity testing and record the results (8.27) on his original envelope. An interesting coin that saw little circulation; one can see that the first figure of the date was originally punched where the stop now is. Listed on page 44 of the 2018 Guide Book.

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
