1774 1/2 P Georgivs III, Machin's Mills Halfpenny, Vlack 8-74A, W-7760 (as Vlack 5-74A), R.4, VF25 NGC. Die alignment: 150?. While the grading service has attributed this piece as a Vlack 8-74A, the Vlack 8 die is simply a lapped version of the Vlack 5 die, leading some to designate this die combination as 5-74A. This is a boldly struck example, with some roughness noted in the obverse margins between 6 o'clock and 8 o'clock. The reverse die crack extending from the left of the date up through BR is visible. Listed on page 69 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
