1722 1/2 P Rosa Americana Halfpenny, DEI GRATIA / UTILE, Martin 3.6-C.2, W-1222, R.4, AU53 NGC. 66.8 grains. The surfaces of this piece are mostly brown, with only occasional hints of brass, leading Eric P. Newman to conduct specific gravity testing and record the results (8.27) on his original envelope. An interesting coin that saw little circulation; one can see that the first figure of the date was originally punched where the stop now is. Listed on page 44 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
