"About Uncirculated-50." Ex -
Early American History Auctions, Inc.'s Mail Bid Sale, August 25, 2001,
Lot 1350, where it was described as follows: "1760 Voce Populi
Halfpenny, Crosslet after VOCE, Nelson 2, About Uncirculated-50.
121.3 grains. Light brown and semi-glossy. The obverse shows
some scattered pitting that appears to have been in the planchet before
the coin was struck. This variety usually comes flatly struck at the
centers, but this one shows excellent detailing in those areas, even
stronger than on the Norweb example (labelled "among the finest
known"). Straight edge clip at the base of the obverse, barely
affecting the denticles."
"About Uncirculated" (illustrated below). Ex -
Early American History Auctions, Inc.'s Mail Bid Sale, June 9, 2001, Lot 1237,
where it was described as follows: "1760 Voce Populi Halfpenny,
Nelson 2, About Uncirculated. 118.0 grains. This coin is probably a
technical Unc., but the strike was very soft and the original planchet was
defective. The color is golden brown and the fields are nice and lustrous.
Because the strike was so weak, the central devices appear granular since the
metal was not forced up into the recesses of the die. In any event, this is an
important coin because of its high condition and as an interesting illustration
of how dramatically different a coin can appear depending on how well it is
struck." - Early American History Auctions, Inc.'s Mail Bid Sale,

Fine. 92.4 grains. Choice, light brown colors -- a beauty (even
for the grade)."
