    Near-Gem Red 1773 Virginia Halfpenny
    With Period, Newman 26-Y

    1773 1/2P Virginia Halfpenny, Period MS64 Red PCGS. CAC. Newman 26-Y. A solid near-Gem Red of this delightfully high-quality and available issue. The lovely orange-red of the fields would do justice to a Lincoln cent from the early 20th century, much less the third quarter of the 18th century. Minor mellowing appears, still within the Red context, only on King George's cheek and the raised design outlines on the reverse. Listed on page 43 of the 2009 Guide Book. For all Periods varieties, Population: 29 in 64, 1 finer (2/09).
    From The Burning Tree Collection.
