179 1771 Machin's Mills (Atlee) Halfpenny. Vlack 2-71A (R-4) F $375.00
1771 Machin's Mills (Atlee) Halfpenny. Vlack 2-71A (R-4). 120.6 gns. Fine. Medium brown surfaces exhibit...
120.6 gns. Fine. Medium brown surfaces exhibit subtle rose and pale blue overtones on both sides. Struck a bit off-center toward 4:00 on the obverse and toward 3:00 on the reverse. This off-centering has emphasized the distinct, triangular denticles seen on many Machin's Mills halfpence and other colonials. The planchet is small but thick, with a perfectly squared edge. A soft strike has failed...  more
180 1772 Machin's Mills (Atlee) Halfpenny. Vlack 5-72A (R-6). 'V' in GEORGIVS. AB VF $1,000.00
1772 Machin's Mills (Atlee) Halfpenny. Vlack 5-72A (R-6). 'V' in GEORGIVS. 111.3 gns. About Very Fine...
111.3 gns. About Very Fine in terms of wear. Surfaces range from medium to orange-brown and are quite uniformly rough on both sides. Technically, this coin was probably EF or better before the surface quality changed. Date is bold, and the devices are fully outlined with much bust and hair detail remaining on the obverse, and even some detail visible in Britannia's tiny head on the reverse....  more
181 1772 Machin's Mills (Atlee) Halfpenny. Vlack 6-72A (R-6+) F $3,000.00
1772 Machin's Mills (Atlee) Halfpenny. Vlack 6-72A (R-6+). 105.5 gns. Fine. Although the date is quite...
105.5 gns. Fine. Although the date is quite weakly defined, this variety is easily identifiable by the die breakage on the reverse and the very distinct obverse bust, which is also shared by the 1776 Large Date Machin's Mills halfpenny. Surfaces are uniformly porous and are a dark brown in hue, with the high points of the devices graced in lighter brown toning. This coin has about as...  more
182 1772 Machin's Mills (Atlee) Halfpenny. Vlack 24-72C (R-6+) F to VF $1,600.00
1772 Machin's Mills (Atlee) Halfpenny. Vlack 24-72C (R-6+). 105.3 gns. Fine to Very Fine for the variety....
105.3 gns. Fine to Very Fine for the variety. Clearly holed at right obverse, with a few tiny attempted punctures surrounding hole on reverse. Surfaces are an attractive dark brown hue in the fields, while the devices and legends are worn to a noticeably lighter brown tone. Scattered circulation tics are joined by an acceptable amount of porosity on this mostly hard and lightly glossy coin....  more
183 1774 Machin's Mills (Atlee) Halfpenny. Vlack 8-74A (R-4). 'V' in GEORGIVS. F $170.00

114.2 gns. Fine. Here is an attractive specimen of this variety sporting light brown devices and legends that are framed by dark olive-brown, lightly porous fields. Surfaces are fortunately lacking the harsh tics and scratches that sometimes plague these Halfpence.
184 1775 Machin's Mills (Atlee) Halfpenny. Vlack 4-75A (R-4) CH VG $220.00
1775 Machin's Mills (Atlee) Halfpenny. Vlack 4-75A (R-4). 105.1 gns. Choice Very Good. Surfaces are...
105.1 gns. Choice Very Good. Surfaces are a pleasing dark coffee brown with some minor porosity and circulation marks. Vlack 4-75A is virtually unknown in the upper circulated grades, make pleasing, lower grade specimens like this very desirable. The reverse is struck from the late state of the die, the center indistinct due to failure in that area. Although most British made George...  more
185 1776 Machin's Mills (Atlee) Halfpenny. Vlack 6-76A (R-4). Large Date CH F $800.00
1776 Machin's Mills (Atlee) Halfpenny. Vlack 6-76A (R-4). Large Date. 102.3 gns. Choice Fine. Surfaces...
102.3 gns. Choice Fine. Surfaces are a hard and glossy, mostly dark brown hue, while the central devices are a notably lighter, olive drab hue. The strike is about average for the variety, and the centering is near perfect. A glass reveals many ancient tics on George's head, which may be inherent in the planchet or may be some marks garnered during active circulation. Here is a very...  more
186 1784 American Imitation British Halfpenny. Vlack 14-84A (R-5+) VF $3,750.00
1784 American Imitation British Halfpenny. Vlack 14-84A (R-5+). 99.3 gns. Very Fine. Here is an absolutely...
99.3 gns. Very Fine. Here is an absolutely splendid example of a variety that is often found in a damaged, holed, roughened or corroded state. Surfaces are a hard and glossy, medium chestnut brown hue and are a little irregular only in the right reverse field, which is opposite the deepest point of the obverse die, George's head. There was most probably insufficient striking pressure...  more
187 1787 Machin's Mills (Atlee) Counterfeit Halfpenny-Connecticut muling PR $8,500.00
1787 Machin's Mills (Atlee) Counterfeit Halfpenny-Connecticut muling.  Vlack 13-87CT (R-7+). Miller...
Vlack 13-87CT (R-7+). Miller 101-G.2. Breen 998. 134.0 gns. Fine. Dark brown fields surround design motifs and legends that are worn to a pleasing olive-brown hue. Surfaces are lightly granular but not disturbingly so. The planchet itself is a study in the colonial era minting process, with two small curved planchet clips most easily seen at the 2:00 and 6:00 on the reverse; there is also...  more
188 1787 Machin's Mills (Atlee) Halfpenny. Vlack 17-87A. VF $400.00
1787 Machin's Mills (Atlee) Halfpenny. Vlack 17-87A. 113.9 gns. Very Fine. Surfaces are dark ebony...
113.9 gns. Very Fine. Surfaces are dark ebony brown and uniformly rough, with a few small to medium sized patches of green verdigris on the obverse. Here is well-detailed coin for the collector who prefers detail over surface quality.
189 1787 Machin's Mills (Atlee) Halfpenny. Vlack 17-87B. (see below) $1,000.00
1787 Machin's Mills (Atlee) Halfpenny. Vlack 17-87B. 105.9 gns. Rich mahogany brown surfaces dominate,...
105.9 gns. Rich mahogany brown surfaces dominate, with lighter clay-brown tones highlighting the crevices and borders of the devices on both sides. A glass reveals minor, uniform porosity in the surfaces, which are most hard and a bit glossy. In addition, a small verdigris area behind George's head blends well with the coin's patina and is not immediately noticeable. Struck from a die...  more
190 1787 Machin's Mills (Atlee) Halfpenny. Vlack 17-87B. CH F $200.00
1787 Machin's Mills (Atlee) Halfpenny. Vlack 17-87B. 114.5 gns. Choice Fine. Rich mahogany brown surfaces...
114.5 gns. Choice Fine. Rich mahogany brown surfaces are of an attractive hue not often encountered on this variety or in the entire Machin's series. Uncharacteristically smooth, this coin exhibits minor patches of darker coloration at the reverse rims from the 11:00 to 3:00 positions. Struck a trifle off-center on both sides, cutting off the tops of a few letters. Struck from an early...  more
191 1787 Machin's Mills (Atlee) Halfpenny. Vlack 17-87B. F to VF $100.00

116.2 gns. Fine to Very Fine. Here is a coin that is intriguing for the lateness of the die states. Both obverse and reverse are in a broken, failing, and sunken state, the latest we have ever seen and even a bit more advanced than the latest die state in Albany Collection (lot 77). Light rose and gold toning join this coin's deep brown surfaces, which host a bunch of tiny circulation...  more
192 1787 Machin's Mills (Atlee) Halfpenny. Vlack 18-87C (R-4) (see below) $300.00
1787 Machin's Mills (Atlee) Halfpenny. Vlack 18-87C (R-4). 103.0 gns. Dark coffee brown surfaces are...
103.0 gns. Dark coffee brown surfaces are mostly uniform in hue, with lighter olive brown tones at the high points at the devices and legends. Fields are a trifle rough, some of which comes from the inherent roughness in the dies. 'ITAN' of BRITANNIA is a trifle weak, but not disturbingly so. Here is very acceptable specimen of this R-4 variety.
193 Machin's Mills (Atlee) Halfpence. 1787 Vlack 21-II-87D-II (R-4) VG $260.00

Very Fine. Well-detailed on both sides, with dark brown surfaces and ruddy highlights. Planchet is wavy, with some ancient surface scuffs and edge scrapes; 1788 Vlack 23-88A. Fine. Surfaces are hard and glossy but exhibit areas of verdigris. Rims are bruised on both sides. High points are worn to a bright coppery hue; 1774 Vlack 8-74A (R-4). Very Good, or finer. Pleasing, light brown surfaces...  more
194 Machin's Mills (Atlee) Halfpence. 1787 Vlack 21-II-87D-II (R-4) VG to F $180.00

Fine. A decent coin whose dark brown surfaces are microscopically porous on both sides, as might be expected of a Machin's Mills halfpenny!; 1774 Vlack 8-74A (R-4). Good. Clay-brown, pitted and porous. Planchet warped from an edge ding. Not pretty, but a representative of the variety; 1778 Vlack 11-78A (R-3). Very Good to Fine. Golden brown and quite porous in the fields. Date is weak but visible....  more
