1773 Virginia "Penny"

Is this a "Penny" or 1/2 Penny?
Yes
No

I declined after being offered the one and only PCGS PR65+ BN "Penny" for big bucks.

Nice coin and it is variety 1-A on a slightly bigger planchet (both diameter and weight) but I am not sure how many knowledgeable people consider it a penny or not.

Did you look at the PR65+ BN? It has a different reverse then the PR66 one...

Yes only one is the variety 1-A the "Penny".  Not sure what the other variety is.  There is a new book on the Virginia coinage that will be available at the C4 convention this year.  At Charlie Davis' table.
