1747 1/2 P Georgivs II, Machin's Mills Halfpenny, Vlack 1-47A, W-7660, R.5, VG8 NGC. Die alignment: 180?. Although a heavily circulated example of this variety, it is also rather choice, with smooth surfaces, a full date, and original coloration. Weakly struck in the center, as usual, most noticeably on the obverse. All features and legends are visible, even if soft. A very small planchet clip at 5 o'clock of the obverse lends the piece additional character. Listed on page 69 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Capital Coin (1966); Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
