1723 Rosa Americana Twopence. Martin 3.5-E.5, W-1338. Rarity-4. MS-62 (PCGS). Handsome copper brown surfaces also reveal intermingled olive-gold highlights as the coin rotates under a light. This piece is sharply struck for the type, especially throughout the obverse portrait, and the eye appeal is superior to that seen in the typical (well) worn survivor of Woods Rosa Americana twopence series. Light pitting in the planchet is generally confined to the left obverse border, and the overall appearance on both sides is one of uncommonly smooth surfaces at the MS-62 grade level. A strong candidate for inclusion in a high grade type set of colonial and early American coinage. From our Chicago ANA Auction of August 2013, lot 1199.
