    Exceptional 1778 Machin's Mills Halfpenny
    Vlack 11-78A, About Uncirculated

    1778 1/2P Machin's Mills Halfpenny AU50 PCGS. Vlack 11-78A, W-7820, R.3. Machin's Mills halfpence are typically seen in low grades with soft details, but this example is unusually sharp and well-preserved. Golden-brown patina covers both sides, with the occasional hint of cherry-red. Several minor mint-made laminations and slight porosity barely affect design definition. An excellent example of this scarce variety. Listed on page 64 of the 2010 Guide Book. Population: 1 in 50, 1 finer (6/09).

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2B45, PCGS# 466)
