1795 1/2P Washington Grate Halfpenny, Large Buttons, Lettered Edge MS65 Brown PCGS. Baker-29, W-10990, R.6. Ex: Norweb.

Flawless aside from a couple of faint curved central reverse flan marks characteristic of the issue. Listed on page 83 of the 2013 Guide Book.
Ex: B. Max Mehl (1/1937); Norweb Collection of Washingtonia (Stack's, 11/2006), lot 2030, which realized $5,750. (PCGS# 743)
