Betts-519, W-8350 variety, estimated by us to be Rarity-2 as an issue, but at least R-7 on the oversized planchet seen here.
Indeed, while most Pitt Halfpennies are struck on constricted planchets with the legends tight to the rims, this one is extremely broad with wide margins all around.
And the coin itself is quite choice, with very nice chocolate brown color an even strike and crisp detail.
Certainly the first we’ve offered (or seen, actually) like this, most unusual, extremely striking in appearance and representing a rare opportunity for the specialist.
