    1787 Machin's Mills Halfpenny, AU58
    Vlack 19-87C, W-7940

    1787 Machin's Mills Halfpenny, Vlack 19-87C, W-7940, R.2, AU58 NGC. A late die state showing failure at the lower right obverse. Vlack's reverse 87C saw extensive use with six different Machin's Mills obverse dies (in emission order, 20, 19, 18, 21, 25, and 23). After that long series of Machin's Mills halfpence, the Britannia reverse was combined with a Vermont obverse to strike the famous Ryder-Richardson 13 that is known as the "Vermont Britannia" variety. A few areas of olive-brown appear on the espresso-brown surfaces of this exceptional example that has a small area of reddish patina at the upper obverse. Listed on page 71 of the 2021 Guide Book.
    Ex: Mike Ringo (8/20/1985); Donald G. Partrick.
