Details

1778 Machin's Mills circulating imitation halfpenny. Vlack 12-78B. Rarity-3. About Uncirculated or better. An extremely high grade example of one of Thomas Machin's counterfeit halfpence. Traces of honest-to-goodness mint color surround GEO on the obverse, while the surfaces overall blend light brown with faint gold and rose, a bit uneven, lively and showing some mint frost or bloom, if not lustre. The legends are complete and the devices are crisp, though a scattering of natural planchet defects are present atop the obverse portrait and a few more confined areas of the reverse. Though the planchet is flawed, this is as extremely sharp, essentially unworn, and very attractive example of this famed early American issue. Its quality is reminiscent of pieces associated with the "Stepney Hoard," though I have no specific provenance on this piece. How many Machin's Mills halfpence have you seen with lustre and faded mint color?
