Description 1760 1/2P Hibernia-Voce Populi Halfpenny -- Scratches -- NGC Details. VF. N. 10, Z. 13-K, W-1382X, R.5. Types of the Voce Populi halfpence are known with short and long busts. Most long bust varieties exhibit a letter P on the obverse, either to the right or below the bust, the meaning of which is unknown. This is a rare long bust variety without the P, and exhibiting an unusually small 6 in the date. Strong detail is present on the obverse, with deep chocolate-brown patina over the glossy surfaces. NGC notes several old pin scratches in the central reverse, though they are not outwardly detracting to the unaided eye. This is a pleasing example of the rare variety. Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp & Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $1.00; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $411.25.
