"Choice EF-45" (illustrated above). Ex - Early American History Auctions, Inc.'s Mail Bid
Sale, December 9, 2000, Lot 845, where it was described as follows:
"1760 Voce Populi Halfpenny, P in Front of Face, Nelson 12,
Choice Extremely Fine-45. Glossy brown, with choice
surfaces and no problems whatsoever. Not as well-detailed as the
Taylor coin (typographically misattributed as a Nelson-2), but that
coin was porous. A scarce subtype that is in demand because of the
unexplained "P" in front of the face." - Early American History Auctions, Inc.'s Mail Bid Sale,

"Very Fine". Ex -
Early American Numismatics, Inc.'s Mail Bid Sale April 21, 2001, Lot
1040, where it was described as follows: "1760 Voce Populi
Halfpenny, P before Face, Nelson 12, Very Fine. 143.2
grains. Medium golden brown in color, with several old, shallow (an
minor) rim bruises. A good example for the type and variety. The
purpose of the P is unknown, but some experts speculate that the
letter may have been a denomination designation (i.e. P = Pence)."

large and connected to the exergue line. The 6 of the date is
small by comparison and has a small, almost vertical point.
