1760 Voce Populi Halfpenny. Nelson-14, Zelinka 16-O, W-13960. Rarity-6. P Below Bust. Engrailed Edge (Rarity-9 for the edge variant on this variety). AU-50 (PCGS).128.6 grains. Dark mahogany brown and lightly glossy on both sides, the darker fields outlining devices and legends that are gently worn to a lighter olive-brown hue. The fields show some of the minor pimpling that affects many coins in the series, the result of having been struck on cast planchets. A minuscule curved or perhaps straight clip is noted at 6 oclock on the obverse, affecting the "P" below the bust in that location. In his notes, Syd mentioned the clipped planchet, calling it an as-made beveling, but did not note the reeding that decorates the entire circumference of the edge except in the region of the tiny clip. The reeding was undoubtedly applied in a Castaing machine, which would not have been able to impart the edge device where the planchet dipped because of the clip.<p>In Zelinkas well-researched article on the series, he noted that "edges are plain, no lettering or other devices are known." An Engrailed Edge example of Nelson-11 appeared as lot 17 in our (Stacks) March 1995 sale of the James A. Stack, Sr. Collection and was donated by Joe Lasser to the collections at Colonial Williamsburg. Perhaps some leftover planchets from another coin or token with engrailed edge were used to accidentally strike a small number of Voce Populi halfpence, and as few as two seem to survive today; both are "P Below Bust" types. Not only is this an extremely rare Engrailed Edge Voce Populi halfpenny, it is also one of the finest survivors of the die marriage, finer than the McGrath EF-40, Ryder-Boyd-Ford "Choice EF", the Norweb VF-30 that looks much finer in the photo, and the Zelinka (Taylor sale) EF-40 "from the standpoint of actual wear." The Ted Craige coin, now in an AU-58 (PCGS) encapsulation, still has golden mint color and is the finest known, and this one is probably not far behind on the condition census. <p>.PCGS# 924120.
