Description 1795 1/2C Talbot/Blofield MS66 Brown NGC. Breen-1051, W-8725, High R.4. For this mule, a 1795-dated obverse die was paired with a reverse depicting cavalry weapons and instruments, with the legend BLOFIELD CAVALRY surrounding. FIFTH TROOP is seen on a scroll in the upper reverse field. Only one variety is known, exhibiting a serpentine line and dot pattern around the edge. The obverse die is lapped, likely to remove signs of die rust prior to striking, as the remnants of the granular texture are seen on the relief elements with low-power magnification. This high-end piece is otherwise sharply struck, with beautifully preserved surfaces. Glossy burgundy patina graces each side, with significant remnants of Red luster seen in the recesses. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $7,050.00. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
