|Title||1795 Washington Liberty & Security Halfpenny, London Edge, BN|
|Service Catalog #||755|
1795 1/2 P Washington Liberty & Security Halfpenny, London Edge, Baker-31, W-11015, Musante GW-48, R.6, XF45 NGC. Die alignment: 150?. A multi-hued patina and a firm strike balance out a handful of circulation marks on this Washington Conder token issue. An extensive die crack arcs across the top of the reverse from the Y of LIBERTY to above the R in SECURITY. The halfpennies in this series are considerably more rare than the pennies; they seem to be genuinely undervalued for such scarce Washington tokens. Listed on page 86 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: "Colonel" E.H.R. Green; Green Estate; Partnership of Eric P. Newman / B.G. Johnson d.b.a. St. Louis Stamp and Coin Co.; Eric P. Newman @ $2.50; Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
