Description George III silver Pattern Halfpenny 1791, by Droz, Peck-999 (extremely rare), plain edge, PR65 NGC. Beautiful bluish gray toning with hues of golden iridescence highlights the heavily frosted portrait, bold strike and deeply reflective mirrored fields of this truly rare restrike by Taylor. This style of halfpenny pattern was engraved by Droz in a series of varieties originally struck at the Soho Mint from 1788 to 1790. We cannot locate a recent sale of this rarity, one of Taylor's earliest restrikes. Realized $4,993.75. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
