|Title||1793 Washington Ship Halfpenny, Copper, Lettered Edge, BN|
|Service Catalog #||734|
1793 1/2 P Washington Ship Halfpenny, Copper, Lettered Edge, Baker-18, W-10855, Musante GW-20, R.4, XF40 NGC. Die alignment: 180?. Unlike many other members of the British Conder token series, the Washington Ship Halfpenny saw extensive circulation. This piece remains attractive, with a uniform strike and good coloration (though a bit darker on the reverse than the obverse). Unlike many other Washington tokens, the 1793 date on these is probably an accurate reflection of when they were struck. Listed on page 85 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
