"About Uncirculated".  Ex - Early American History Auctions, Inc.'s Mail Bid Sale, June 9, 2001, Lot 1239, where it was described as follows: "1760 Voce Populi Halfpenny, Nelson 9, About Uncirculated.  96.8 grains. Luscious, dark chocolate-brown colors. Struck on an under-sized planchet, which seems to be typical for this variety. Both sides have a couple of soft rim bruises which are not too distracting. Overall, a very appealing example of the variety and type."

"EF-40."  Bowers and Merena Galleries "The Robert W. Schwan Collection," October 26-27, 2000, Lot 4, "Breen 223, Z-6C, 111.5 grains, 26.1 mm" @ $402.50

Notes:
All examples we have observed of this variety have been on undersized planchets such that the bottoms of the date are cut off.

Obv: a small spur sticks out from the eyebrow.  The front of the truncation shows a small split.  Sometimes a small patch of raised metal appears on shoulder.

Rev: usually soft in the center of the coin and on the figure's shoulder.  Die roughness surrounds most of the legends and affects the stars to the right of the harp.
