    1774 Machin's Mills Halfpenny, VF25
    Vlack 8-74A

    1774 1/2 P Georgivs III, Machin's Mills Halfpenny, Vlack 8-74A, W-7760 (as Vlack 5-74A), R.4, VF25 NGC. Die alignment: 150°. While the grading service has attributed this piece as a Vlack 8-74A, the Vlack 8 die is simply a lapped version of the Vlack 5 die, leading some to designate this die combination as 5-74A. This is a boldly struck example, with some roughness noted in the obverse margins between 6 o'clock and 8 o'clock. The reverse die crack extending from the left of the date up through BR is visible. 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.
