Description

Charming 1795 Irish Halfpenny Liberty And Security Mule

1795 1/2P Irish Halfpenny/Liberty And Security Mule AU50 PCGS. Baker-31M. Breen-1266, "Very scarce." The Baker-31 reverse is muled with an Irish Halfpenny token die. On the obverse, Hope faces left and leans on an anchor. Both dies are dated 1795. The PCGS holder incorrectly indicates this piece as a normal London Edge 1795 Washington Liberty And Security Halfpenny. The devices and borders retain mint shimmer, and the medium brown surfaces are not conspicuously marked. The devices are somewhat softly struck, as intended by the makers so that the piece would appear circulated when new and thus pass in commerce.
From The Oak Collection of American Colonial Coinage. (PCGS# 761)
