Massachusetts Copper Half Cent, R2-A, W5910, R3. This coin has been authenticated and graded
by PCGS as VF25, and it's a lovely example for the grade. Glossy medium chestnut brown with hints of
golden undertones, with bold VF+ details.
The obverse is nearly mark-free, while my supersized photos reveal some VERY tiny pinpricks on the reverse.
You don't really notice them with the coin in hand, only with strong
magnification. A little darker color
in person, and certainly more attractive than my photos suggest. I would be tempted to call this a PLUS coin
but will refrain due to those tiny nicks.
