    1773 Virginia Halfpenny, MS64 Red
    Newman 27-J, W-1585

    1773 1/2P Virginia Halfpenny, Period MS64 Red PCGS. CAC. Newman 27-J, W-1585, R.2. A splash of steel toning appears on the bust of King George on this brilliant and satiny near-Gem. Both sides have bright orange mint luster with satin surfaces. Struck slightly off-center toward 10 o'clock, although insufficiently to warrant a mint error designation. Despite the discovery of a 19th century hoard, few full Red Virginia halfpennies survive today. Listed on page 43 of the 2012 Guide Book. Population: 33 in 64 Red, 1 finer (5/11).
