Description 1773 1/2P Virginia Halfpenny, Period MS63 Red and Brown NGC. N. 27-J, W-1585, R.2. 127.6 grains. A period follows GEORGIVS, and the reverse has seven harp strings. Note the repunched letter A in the reverse legend that is best seen in high-grade examples. A plentiful variety for the type collector, the 27-J was represented in substantial quantities among coins from the Cohen hoard. This is one of the eight monogamous halfpence die pairs in the Virginia series. This pleasing Mint State piece has considerable original mint color, especially on the reverse, with both sides exhibiting olive-brown toning. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $1,586.25. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
