Description

    Superb No Period 1773 Virginia Halfpenny
    Single Finest Certified by NGC

    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 penetrating, and the eye appeal is exemplary. Anyone in search of the ultimate quality No Period Virginia halfpenny need look no further. NGC has yet to certify a full red example, and among the 26 pieces certified as either Brown or Red and Brown, only the present Superb Gem exceeds the MS65 level (as of 10/07). Listed on page 43 of the 2008 Guide Book. (NGC ID# 2ATL, PCGS# 244)
