1772 Machin's Mills Halfpenny. Vlack 6-72A. Rarity-6. GEORGIVS III. VG Details--Environmental Damage (PCGS).
This is a mostly dark copper example with a few areas of crimson surface scale in isolated areas. Both sides are overall rough with considerable pitting and granularity, although there are no singularly distracting abrasions. The definition is suitably bold for the assigned grade in all areas save for around the reverse periphery, and in addition to the diagnostic carrot-shaped break, a second reverse die break is prominent at the border through the letters IT in BRITANNIA. A highly collectable example of a rare Machin's Mills date and variety.
PCGS# 451.
