Description 1723 1/2P Rosa Americana Halfpenny, Crown AU58 NGC. Martin 3.7-F.1, W-1236, R.4. The first stop is slightly high and midway between S and D; the second stop is centered and closer to I; and the nose points to right side of I. This obverse was only used with reverse die F.1: no dot after 1723; the top of the cross under the right side of R; AN in AMERICANA nearly touch at the bases; and the I in DULCI is repunched. This example shows dark-brown coloration and is very attractive for the grade, with a bold strike and smooth, abrasion-free surfaces. Some of the dentils are imperfectly produced on both sides. Elusive in such a high grade, this problem-free coin will appeal to the specialist. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $1,645.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
