    1766 Pitt Halfpenny, Betts-519
    Brockage, VF Details

    1766 Pitt Halfpenny--Brockage, Damaged--NGC Details. VF. Betts-519, W-8350, R.3. The previously struck Pitt halfpenny (not included) failed to eject from the reverse die. The present piece was then struck between the obverse die and the obverse of the previously struck example. The reverse exhibits an inverted and incused image of the obverse design. The golden-brown and lilac surfaces are lightly abraded and display wear commensurate with the grade. The Pitt halfpenny is extremely rare as a brockage, with only one other example (lot 4219 in an August 2012 Stack's Bowers auction) known to the cataloger. Listed on page 52 of the 2021 Guide Book.
    Ex: Richard Picker; Donald G. Partrick.
