    1787 Machin's Mills Georgivs Halfpenny, VF20
    Vlack 18-87C; RR-13 'Britannia' Reverse

    1787 1/2P Machin's Mills Halfpenny VF20 NGC. Vlack 18-87C, W-7930, R.4. The GEORGIVS. III. REX. obverse was paired with the same BRITANNIA reverse later used to coin the RR-13 Vermont coppers. This dark, smooth example shows minor granularity across the deep olive-brown surfaces. The BRITAN NIA legend is bold. The strike on this planchet is well centered, with the 1787 date slightly off the flan at the bottom. A popular addition for collectors of the Vermont copper series.
    Ex: R. August (7/1983); Q. David Bowers Collection; Jon Hanson (3/1988); Donald Groves Partrick.

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