Description Undated PENNY Washington Liberty & Security Penny MS65 Red NGC. Baker-30, W-11050, R.2. Produced in England in 1795, this large, undated copper saw extensive circulation and most extant pieces exhibit light to moderate wear. Varieties are known with both plain and ornamented rims. This piece represents the plain rims variant, and is the finest of just two full Red examples certified (4/14). The level of preservation is exceptional, with rich copper-red luster over both sides and no noticeable surface flaws. The strike is bold, and some minor softness on the reverse rim at 9 o'clock is normal for this variety. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society. Realized $8,812.50. Description courtesy of Heritage Auctions.
