    Choice AU 1787 Machin's Mills Halfpenny, Vlack 18-87C

    1787 1/2P Machin's Mills Halfpenny AU55 NGC. Vlack 18-87C, R.4. Well struck in the centers with softness at the margins, a striking pattern found on a number of Machin's Mills varieties. The luminous teak-brown surfaces of this modestly marked example have tiny flecks of bright color in the fields. Actual wear is restricted to the highpoints, such as the portrait's lips and the knee of Britannia. Listed on page 64 of the 2008 Guide Book. This is the only piece certified in AU55 by NGC, and none are finer (7/07).

    Coin Index Numbers: (NGC ID# 2B47, PCGS# 469)
