Details

England. 1729 halfpenny. George II, Young Head. Proof-64 BN (NGC). While the US Mint wasn't producing creditable Proof coins until 1817 (or 1821, depending upon who you ask), the Tower Mint was doing a bang-up job producing very impressive proofs a century earlier. This halfpenny shows impressively mirrored surfaces and rich blue toning, along with red highlights around the devices on both sides. The strike is complete (a double strike will do that for you), bringing up even the portrait details on the reverse figure of Britannia. Some light hairlines are seen, but not enough to have this grade lower than a near-gem 64. This would be a glorious way to represent this design in a type set.
