    1722 Rosa Americana Penny, AU53
    Martin 2.1-A.1

    1722 PENNY Rosa Americana Penny, VTILE AU53 NGC. Martin 2.1-A.1, W-1256, R.5. This obverse die has the first stop centered midway between S and D; the second stop is high and a bit closer to G than I; the nose points to I; both ribbons are extremely short (diagnostic). Three different reverse dies were paired with this obverse. This is an example of reverse die A.1, where the first stop is slightly high and closer to the second A in AMERICANA; the second stop is centered midway between E and D. A defect (die chip) below the date is diagnostic.
    This is a sharply struck representative with deep walnut-brown toning intermingled with greenish hues across each side. The surfaces are remarkably clean and distraction-free. High-point wear only affects the central details.
    Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.

    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.
