1787 1/2 P Georgivs III, Machin's Mills Halfpenny, Vlack 19-87C, W-7940, R.2 -- Damaged -- NGC Details. Fine. 117.5 grains. Die alignment: 180?. Uniform light brown patina and generally smooth surfaces improve the eye appeal of this piece, which has suffered some digs to George's jaw--probably while it was still in circulation. This is a middle state of the reverse die, with a small crack forming over Britannia's head. The awkwardly lettered obverse die was used only in this combination. Listed on page 69 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Empire Coin Company; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
