Superb Gem 1772 George III Halfpenny, Single Finest Certified by PCGS

SOLD

Details

England. 1772 halfpenny of George III. MS-65 RB (PCGS). A glorious gem, chiefly bright mint red with some light mellowing in the fields. Boldly lustrous and nicely reflective, with superb eye appeal on both sides. As has been repeated a thousand ways in a thousand places, the English halfpenny (and its counterfeit and Irish counterparts) was the principal coin of early America from the time of George I through the beginning of the 19th century. The George III halfpence, like this one, inspired the designs of state coppers, Machin's Mills imitations, and counterfeits from hundreds of makers. It is both a colonial-era icon and a bedrock inclusion in any collection of colonial coins. Needless to say, this quality is all but unimproveable. This is the single finest graded 1772 halfpenny at PCGS, with no other MS-65 RB specimens graded. There are a couple of MS-65 BN coins, and 8 other RB coins in all grades (plus one coin graded MS-64 RD). On the entire type, 1770-1775, there are just four MS-65 RB coins and two finer (both MS-66, one BN and one RB).
