    Superb Gem Red and Brown Newman 7-D
    No Period 1773 Virginia Halfpenny

    1773 1/2P Virginia Halfpenny, No Period MS67 Red and Brown NGC. Newman 7-D. Orange-red luster dominates the reverse, and fills the obverse legends as well as King George's hair. Steel-blue toning consumes the obverse field and portrait, in addition to the cross section of the shield. This is a remarkable coin with no indication of carbon or contact. The strike is complete, and the eye appeal is exemplary. Anyone in search of the ultimate quality No Period Virginia halfpenny need look no further. Neither NGC nor PCGS has certified any other Virginia halfpenny finer than this piece. Listed on page 43 of the 2009 Guide Book.
    Ex: Houston Signature (Heritage, 11/2007), lot 60008, which realized $13,800.
