1773 Virginia Halfpenny. Newman 25-M, W-1580. Rarity-2. Period After GEORGIVS, 7 Harp Strings. MS-63+ BN (PCGS).Light olive-brown patina allows ready appreciation of ample bright pinkish-orange color as the surfaces dip into a light. The strike is tight to the upper obverse and lower right reverse borders, the denticulation incomplete on both sides, yet with all design elements boldly to sharply rendered. Handsome Choice Mint State quality for the Virginia halfpenny, and ideal for inclusion in a high grade type set of Colonial era coinage.
