    1722 Rosa Americana Halfpenny, VG10
    Martin 1.1-A.1

    1722 1/2P Rosa Americana Halfpenny, VTILE DVLCI VG10 NGC. Martin 1.1-A.1, W-1214, R.5. The obverse legend is GEORGIUS.DEI .GRATIA.REX. On the reverse, it is ROSA AMERI:VTILE.DVLCI.1722. The reverse die is the same as Norweb: 2396, with the straight die break near the L in VIILE. This example is well centered, all of the legends are full, and it has deep red-brown patina with rust-colored accents noted mainly near the reverse borders. There is mild porosity seen in some of the fields, and the rims are uneven and imperfectly produced on both sides, due to apparent die erosion.

    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.
