    1774 Machin's Mills Halfpenny, VG8
    Vlack 7-74A, GEORGIUS Variety

    1774 1/2 P Georgius III, Machin's Mills Halfpenny, Vlack 7-74A, W-7770, R.4, VG8 NGC. Die alignment: 150°. The only 1774 variety with GEORGIUS spelled with a U rather than the usual V (it shares the obverse die with the 1772-dated GEORGIUS variety, which was actually struck later). A well-circulated piece, with a small spot of corrosion under the bust and with a few such spots behind Britannia on the reverse. The Vlack 74A reverse is shared by all 1774 Machin's Mills halfpennies: this is its earliest state, without the die crack that develops. Listed on page 69 of the 2018 Guide Book.
    Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2B3Y, PCGS# 454)

    Truth Seeker: The Life of Eric P. Newman (softcover)
    A powerful and intimidating dealer of the 1960s, backed by important colleagues, was accused of selling fraudulent gold coins and ingots to unsuspecting numismatists. Who would go up against a man like that and, over the course of decades, prove the fraud? Who would expose a widely respected scholar as a thief, then doggedly pursue recovery of coins that the scholar had stolen from an embarrassed numismatic organization, all over the objections of influential collectors who had bought coins with clouded titles? Eric P. Newman would - and did. Reserve your copy today.
