    1787 Machin's Mills Halfpenny, VF25
    Vlack 21-87C, W-7960

    1787 Machin's Mills Halfpenny, Vlack 21-87C, W-7960, R.7, VF25 NGC. This is the fourth of seven varieties that shared Vlack reverse 87C, based on the probable emission sequence presented in The History and Coinage of Machin's Mills whose authors rate this variety R.7 (4 to 12 known). Vlack 21-87C is rated URS-5 (9 to 16 known) in the Whitman Encyclopedia of Colonial and Early American Coins. The surviving population is probably in the vicinity of 10 coins. The reverse die is starting to show its age, with the date and the legends rather indistinct. The espresso-brown surfaces of this Condition Census piece are smooth and attractive. Listed on page 71 of the 2021 Guide Book.
