This example has even wear on a pleasing, problem-free planchet. Only three 1723 Rosa Halfpennies have been graded so far by PCGS, this being the highest graded of the three! The GUIDEBOOK treats this rare coin quite favorably, leaving it unpriced in EF and better conditions (further confirmation of this coin's rarity in high grade).
