    1776 Machin's Mills Halfpenny, VF30
    Vlack 6-76A

    1776 1/2 P Georgivs III, Machin's Mills Halfpenny, Vlack 6-76A, W-7790, R.4, VF30 NGC. Die alignment: 150°. A choice example of this popular issue. One of only two varieties of Machin's Mills halfpennies dated 1776, with the other being the rare 9-76B, of which perhaps only a dozen are known. Smooth, glossy surfaces give this piece tremendous eye appeal. The planchet roughness on George's face is commonly encountered, as the die was cut too deeply for it to be stamped smooth in the coining process. Only four graded higher by NGC (8/17). Listed on page 69 of the 2018 Guide Book.
    Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2B43, PCGS# 460)

    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.
