    1778 1/2P Machin's Mills Halfpenny--Clipped Planchet--AU55 NGC. Vlack 11-78A, W-7820, R.3.

Strongly impressed with a few small digs in the portrait area and a curved clip at lower left. Listed on page 64 of the 2011 Guide Book. MRB AU55.
    Purchased from Stack's (8/11/1962).

    Thanks to Heritage I realized a handsome profit for my coin submissions and intend to send most of the remainder of my collection to Heritage Auction Galleries for future auctions.
