CH NS-1A3. ICCS EF-40, cleaned, perhaps a bit better. Cert CZ 465. A deeper than usual obverse strike for this variety, lacking some of the flatness seen on the preceding piece. A few spots on obverse. Attributed incorrectly on the ticket as NS-1A4. Misattribution of the 1823 halfpenny varieties has unfortunately become rampant, with cataloguers making subjective decisions about the number of leaves they perceive on the King's head, rather than having recourse to the plates in Courteau's Nova Scotia monograph to see that each bust is visibly distinct from any other.

Note: this lot is part of The Richard Cooper Collection.
