Description:

1760 Voce Populi Halfpenny Nelson-2 Rarity-3 AU55. Choice glossy medium brown with frosty luster covering the fields and protected areas on both sides. Great eye appeal. The only defect is a spot of shallow reddish corrosion at the base of the V in VOCE. All the fine die preparation lines remain visible in the fields on both sides. The centers are softly struck, as usual, due to the competition for planchet metal between the principal obverse and reverse devices. Listed on page 49 in the "Redbook." Weight 116.8 grains.
Estimated Value $1,000-UP.
