1795 1/2 P Washington North Wales Halfpenny, Plain Edge, One Star at Each Side of Harp, Baker-34, W-11150, Musante GW-51, R.3, XF40 NGC. Die alignment: 150?. An above-average example of these English evasion coppers, with their amusingly spelled GEORGEIVS gracing the obverse and a NORTH WALES / Irish Harp reverse that made as much sense in England as it did in this country. Generally struck weakly in order to appear worn as they quietly entered circulation, this piece features a relatively bold strike and good detail, with original surfaces and coloring. Listed on page 86 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
