Obverse of 1775 Machin's Mills Halfpenny - Vlack 4-75A     
Reverse of 1775 Machin's Mills Halfpenny - Vlack 4-75A

  
1775 MACHIN'S MILLS HALFPENNY -
VLACK 4-75A

Notes:
The obverse die of this variety was also used on:
1771 Vlack 4-71C 
1771 Vlack 4-71D

This was the only use of the reverse die.

Attribution points:
This is the only 1775 reverse in the Machin's Mills series.  Great Britain struck Halfpennies in 1775, so be sure to match the reverse die exactly.
