    Exquisite MS62 Brown D.G. REX Breen-133
    1722 Rosa Americana Halfpenny

    1722 1/2P Rosa Americana Halfpenny, D. G. REX MS62 Brown PCGS. Breen-133. An intricately struck mahogany-brown halfpenny with unabraded fields and no evidence of carbon. The fields have a few raised spidery die lines of mint origin, and a minor strike-through on the L in UTILE provides an identifier. The reverse is misaligned a couple of degrees toward the date, but all legends are fully intact. The quality is exceptional for this conditionally rare variety, which abbreviates DEI GRATIA, the Latin equivalent of "by the grace of God." Listed on page 40 of the 2008 Guide Book. Population: 4 in 62, 0 finer (4/08).
    From The Liberty Collection of American Colonial Coinage, Part Three.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2ASH, PCGS# 101)
