    1788 Machin's Mills Halfpenny, MS64 Brown
    Condition Census Vlack 23-88A

    1788 Machin's Mills Halfpenny, Vlack 23-88A, W-8100, R.2, MS64 Brown NGC. This extraordinary Choice Mint State russet-brown example is the finest of the Machin's Mills series in the Partrick Collection. A small area of green patina is noted at 3 o'clock on the obverse. Jack Howes, James Rosen, and Gary Trudgen, authors of The History and Coinage of Machin's Mills, record a low Condition Census in the range of XF40 to AU50, despite this being one of the most plentiful varieties in the series. There appear to be several higher-grade examples known. This is an excellent opportunity for the specialist to acquire one of the finest known Machin's Mills halfpence. Listed on page 71 of the 2021 Guide Book.
    Ex: Garrett Collection; Johns Hopkins University (Bowers and Ruddy, 3/1981), lot 2233; Donald G. Partrick.

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
