23 halfpennies tend to grade well at PCGS.
Couple of edge dings might affect the grade.
My guess is AU50

Really I would say high VF. Lots of visible wear on George and his crown, some clear wear on inner beads.

Still a nice coin though!
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

As stated earlier PCGS 45 is equal to VF real world grading .
No one will pay Aussie EF money for that coin .
Wish our American cousins would not try to grade
world coins . Never ends well .

Definitely, EF would be all pearls in the crown band sharp, that one has blurred 2nd pearls and only clear diamonds rather than sharps.

Still better than my non existent penny.

Us non Americans, have issues with the grading not coin.

My conversion

USA grades - British/Australian and New Zealand real world grade

USA MS 65 = Choice UNC
MS 63 = UNC
MS 60 = really high AU with usual bag marks and rubbing.
AU 55 = High EF
AU 50 = bare EF/ aEF
XF 45 = gVF
XF 40 = VF
VF35 = aVF or highest Fine
VF 20 = bare Fine
F12 = VG

One of the diagnostics for genuine '23 Ha'pennies is circumferential die cracks.
This coin has a small one on the obverse from 'REX' to 'IMP'.
About half of the total production for '23 Ha'pennies has evidence of die cracks. It seems that all of the dies for the '23 production were not hardened properly.
As a result, most of the 1923 production was carried out using old 1922 dies.
That is why the 1923 Ha'penny is scarce.
