1784 1/2 P Georgivs III, Imitation Halfpenny, Vlack 14-84A, W-8130, R.6 -- Environmental Damage -- NGC Details. Fine. 94.9 grains. Die alignment: 285?. An above-average example of this very scarce and intriguing American imitation halfpenny. The Vlack 14-84A is nearly always poorly struck and centered. Even with the microgranularity covering this specimen, the level of detail present here is high. While some obverse details are faint, virtually nothing is completely effaced; likewise, on the reverse, only the first N of BRITANNIA and her hand extending left are lost. A notable piece, very conservatively graded. Listed on page 69 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Chas. French (11/1967); Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
