Rare Near-Mint 1791 Washington Liverpool Halfpenny

1791 1/2P Washington Liverpool Halfpenny, Copper AU58 PCGS. Baker-17, R.6. The 1791 Liverpool halfpenny is sometimes confused with the 1793 Ship halfpenny. The former is much more rare, however. Before the present auction, only four examples had appeared in Heritage auctions over the past ten years. This lightly marked golden-brown representative shows the die rust and reverse breaks that are characteristic of the issue. The strike is incomplete on Washington's forehead and opposite on the ship, and the left side legends are also slightly weak. Listed on page 77 of the 2007 Guide Book. Population: 2 in 58, 0 finer (9/06).
From The Jones Beach Collection. (NGC ID# 2B7H, PCGS# 698)
