1773 1/2 P Virginia Halfpenny, No Period, Newman 3-F, W-1455, R.4, MS63 Brown NGC. 113.8 grains. Die alignment: 180?. An Uncirculated example of what is arguably the only coinage fully authorized and struck to function as an English colonial coinage. Well-struck with pleasant red-brown surfaces very conservatively designated Brown on the holder. The Newman E reverse was reappraised by Eric P. Newman and other scholars of the series in 2005, at which time it was found to be the same as Reverse F and the designation E was discontinued. Listed on page 47 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
